On the first weekday of the new year, KUSP will be changing the air times of three of our mid-day programs.
We’re making this change in collaboration with KALW in San Francisco,our production partners for “Your Call” with Rose Aguilar. Beginning on January 3, “Your Call” will start one hour earlier, at 10:00 AM Pacific.
The change for “Your Call” leads to two other changes. “The Diane Rehm Show” will also start one hour earlier, at 11:00 AM. Both hours of Diane’s show will air in succession, rather than being broken up as it is now, so it will run until 1:00 PM.
Based on listener surveys and informal feedback, we think “Your Call” will reach more listeners in the earlier time slot on both KUSP and KALW (the program originally was scheduled at 10:00 on KALW, prior to the time we joined them as partners in the show in the fall of 2008). We’re also responding to listener feedback that preferred the two-consecutive-hour format for “The Diane Rehm Show.”
The rest of our schedule remains unchanged, and as always, I’ll be interested to hear your feedback on these changes. Thanks!
