JPR Airs The Daily Starting July 1

Lisa Tobin, Michael Barbaro and Theo Balcomb

JPR is adding The Daily to the Classics & News and News & Information schedules beginning Monday, July 1st.

JPR is proud to deliver the new radio edition of the popular podcast The Daily to listeners. The New York Times and American Public Media collaborated earlier this year to extend the audio news report’s following of 4.5 million monthly unique listeners to the radio audience. The radio edition of the popular podcast will air weekdays at 1:30pm on the News & Information Service, and weeknights at 6:30pm on the Classics & News Service.

Hosted by celebrated journalist Michael Barbaro, The Daily draws on the unrivaled quality and expertise of The New York Times’s global footprint of more than 1,450 journalists. The Daily podcast has found massive success, becoming the most-downloaded new show in 2017 on Apple Podcasts and winning DuPont-Columbia University Award for audio excellence. The radio edition will give public radio listeners a deep analysis of one or two of the day’s top news stories.

Barbaro’s resume includes a tenure as national political correspondent at The New York Times, and he also has served as host of The Run-up, a political podcast that chronicled the 2016 election. Prior to that, he covered New York’s City Hall and the U.S. retail industry. A Yale graduate, Barbaro joined The New York Times after reporting for The Washington Post and covering the biotechnology industry.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
