KJZZ launched a new program schedule in July with a series of shows we think you’ll enjoy-- including new NPR favorites like Radiolab and the TED Radio Hour, and an all-new KJZZ program called The Show. Here’s a look at the changes:
Weekday Schedule - Changes Beginning July 1
Here and Now (11 a.m. – 1 p.m.) – NPR, which recently acquired Here and Now from PRI, will launch its first edition of a two-hour show with Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson. The new hour will replace NPR’s outgoing Talk of the Nation. KJZZ will co-produce the program, providing additional news and stories from Arizona and the Southwest. KJZZ reporters will also share local news reports and analysis. On Wednesdays, Steve Goldstein will continue to host a local edition of KJZZ's Here and Now at 11 a.m. Science Friday will also remain in its noon time slot.
Friday Schedule - Changes Beginning July 12
The Show (2 – 3 p.m.) – This all-new KJZZ production will be hosted by Mark Brodie and Steve Goldstein with help from The Takeaway team and several other public radio reporters and hosts across the country.
