With lots of programming on offer and plans changing by the moment, it’s been a little hard to pin down our schedule for the next couple of days… but here’s the plan as of the moment:
On KUSP-1 (over the air + on-line at kusp.org), we’ll be depending on our staff here, our volunteer reporters in Washington, NPR and American Public Media.
NPR coverage on KUSP-1 starts at 3:00 AM (6 AM in Washington) and will continue non-stop until 11:00. We’ll come back home for Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you, from 11 to noon; then we’ll bring you The Story with Dick Gordon at a special time of 12 noon (NPR will not be producing “Day to Day” on Tuesday). At 1:00 we’ll rejoin NPR’s live coverage and continue with that until 5:30, when we’ll bring you Tuesday’s broadcast of Marketplace, followed by Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Afternoon live coverage should include reports from KUSP volunteers on what’s been happening through the day, in Washington and on the Central Coast.
We’ll also activate KUSP-2, our second program stream, at kusp.org. Unfortunately our engineering staff has been unable to resolve the technical problems plaguing our HD Radio signal, so we won’t be able to carry KUSP-2 over the air. On KUSP-2 we’ll present a two-hour special early edition of Democracy Now beginning at 6:00 AM — following that, Amy Goodman will anchor their live Inauguration coverage, which will continue until 11:00 AM. At 11 KUSP-2 will rejoin KUSP-1 for Your Call.
One more thing… we’ll have a special two-hour Democracy Now wrap-up program Wednesday on KUSP-1 (over the air + on-line) beginning at Democracy Now’s usual time, 9:00 AM.
