September Programming Changes
Beginning Saturday, September 5th, JPR will make a number of changes to our program schedules.
We're kicking off the fall season by bringing seven new shows on board across our services, including the very popular Snap Judgement, The New Yorker Radio Hour, and Think. We're also making a permanent home for a couple of music programs we aired this past spring while our volunteers were safely at home: Folk Alley and WoodSongs.
The financial crunch brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic caused a handful of programs in the public radio world to end production, including Live From Here with Chris Thile, Q the Music, and Ken Rudin's Political Junkie. NPR's On Point will also be scaling back from two hours each day to one.
