Weekend Changes to NHPR's Program Lineup

Feb 18, 2020

Extra hour of BBC for Sunday listening

NHPR’s revised Sunday lineup offers listeners a relaxing mix of storytelling and news, and the chance to enjoy an extra hour of the BBC.

From time to time, NHPR makes adjustments to its schedule to better reflect current programming and better serve listener needs. Our latest round of schedule changes mainly affect the Sunday schedule, and also involve one change to the Saturday evening lineup. The new schedule goes into effect from Saturday, February 29 onward. Listeners can access the schedule anytime at nhpr.org/schedule.

The new schedule:


9 p.m. – Bullseye with Jesse Thorn - The public radio show about ‘what’s good’ in popular culture moves to Saturday evenings; It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders will now move to Sundays at 1 p.m.
