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.
We invite you to explore the frequently asked questions and hope you find this informative. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, we’ve provided a feedback form on our website or please call KUAC at 907-474-7491.
