Weeknight & Weekend Changes to NHPR Program Lineup
Popular podcast Outside/In now to be a weekly radio broadcast
More options for local and national news coverage, and a popular podcast focused on the outdoors come to the airwaves starting this August at New Hampshire Public Radio.
Beginning the week of Monday, August 19, listeners may notice select changes to their listening routines.
Changes to the programming schedule will impact several national and local programs:
Described as a show for a changing America, 1A and its host Joshua Johnson convene daily two-hour discussions on NHPR from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. each weekday. Now listeners can enjoy an additional hour of 1A Monday through Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. 1A Plus highlights the strongest content from the daily two-hour show. Plus is often updated to reflect developing stories, ensuring the content is fresh for an evening audience.
The show’s title, 1A, is a reference to the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. With the philosophy “Speak Freely,” 1A strives to connect people from around the country to the most interesting ideas and issues of the moment. The show delves into a host of topics including politics, technology, arts and culture, lifestyle – and whatever issues rise to the top of the national conversation happening in America each day.
AIRTIME: Monday-Thursday at 8 p.m.
Esteemed Washington journalist Amy Walter brings listeners the latest political trends, interviews with candidates and officeholders, and views from Washington – to help listeners understand how the power and politics of the nation’s capital impacts them.
AIRTIME: Friday at 8 p.m.
Outside/In is NHPR’s podcast about the natural world and how we use it. Host Sam Evans-Brown and a team of producers combine solid reporting with long-form narrative storytelling to bring the outdoors to everyone, anywhere. The program released its first podcast episode in December 2015; more than 100 episodes have been produced since, with more than 1.6 million downloads.
NHPR listeners can hear Outside/In in radio form, as the program will now occupy a regular time slot on NHPR.
