Today is the day! KUAC FM welcomes new shows, some new times, and an extra local newscast, as our FM Program Changes begin following NPR’s discontinuation of Talk of the Nation. You’ll hear a fourth local morning newscast at 9:30am with Here and Now running an extra hour, from 8am-10am. Marketplace Money debuts on our air at 10am, and Fresh Air begins at its new time, 11am. Performance Today starts at 3pm, as PT host Fred Childs brings you his award-winning show following Afternoon Concert. Visit our website for more details, and links to explore new programs.
As a child, “PBS opened up the avenue of music” for Esperanza Spaulding. What if…it opened up a new world for your child? PBS lets us all explore our own “what if’s” and discover worlds of possibility. Please support KUAC locally – you help to sustain the national legacy and treasure that is your public broadcasting service – and inspire dreams for every generation.
KUAC FM will feature a new program on Monday mornings at 10am starting July 1st when Marketplace Money debuts. This innovative show puts business and economic topics in a social or cultural context, with each weekly show dedicated to one theme. Take a look and listen to a recent show about retirement – covering everything from second-act careers to a movie review of The Intern.

In three weeks, you will be able to listen to some fascinating new shows on KUAC FM, when the new Program Changes go into effect. We invite you to preview our new offerings: Marketplace Money, TED Radio Hour, and Radiolab. In addition, meet new co-host Jeremy Hobson who joins veteran host Robin Young, when an expanded, two-hour version Here & Now launches July 1st. We hope you will enjoy our fresh new shows which fit well into our existing line-ups and enable KUAC to better serve the diverse interests of our audience.
As many of you may know, NPR announced that it will end production of Talk of the Nation on June 27th and KUAC is looking at this as a positive opportunity to consider some great new programming, and to re-arrange some existing programs to create a better listening experience. Rest assured Science Friday with Ira Flatow will still be available, and we will continue airing it after Talk of the Nation ends production at the end of this month. Beginning July 1st, some programs will move to different times of day (Performance Today, Fresh Air), and some program additions will be made (TED Radio Hour, Marketplace Money, and Radiolab) all with the commitment to create programming that is thought provoking, trustworthy and even life changing.
