Programming changes beginning June 10th

Beginning June 10th, we'll be switching things up a bit across all three of JPR's program services.

Rhythm & News

JPR's Rhythm & News service will feature a new program lineup weekdays during the 3pm hour. Replacing Q will be Today, Explained and Marketplace.

Today, Explained is Vox's daily news explainer podcast. Hosts Sean Rameswaram and Noel King will guide you through the most important stories of the day.
Hosted by Kai Ryssdal, Marketplace is the leading business news radio program that provides context on the economic news of the day. Through stories, conversations and newsworthy developments, Marketplace helps listeners understand the economic world around them.

News & Information

Hosted by former Morning Edition host, David Greene, Left, Right and Center joins our Saturday morning offerings on JPR's News & Information service. A new program called No Small Endeavor that explores what it means to live a good life will be added to Sunday mornings.

Provocative, up-to-the-minute, alive and witty, KCRW's weekly confrontation over politics, policy and popular culture proves those with impeccable credentials needn't lack personality. This weekly "love-hate relationship of the air" features four of the most insightful news analysts anywhere.

What does it mean to live a good life? What is true happiness? How do we not merely cope, but flourish? Professor Lee C. Camp brings you conversations with those who are taking these questions seriously. You’ll hear from best-selling authors, philosophers, scientists, artists, psychologists, theologians and even politicians as we collectively explore human flourishing.

Classics & News

Our Classics & News weekday lineup will see some changes as we say farewell to Classical Music Director/Host Don Matthews and wish him a happy retirement. Morning Edition will air one hour longer, ending at 8am and Valerie Ing will take the host's seat for First Concert beginning at 8am on July 1. We welcome a new voice to JPR as AJ McCalla joins us as host of Siskiyou Music Hall weekdays from Noon-2PM. At 2pm, we air one of public radio's most popular national programs, Performance Today.

First Concert is JPR's classical music program for the morning hours, including a mix of favorites from the standard repertoire plus a healthy dose of lesser-known composers and pieces.On Saturday mornings, we'll bring you right up to the opening curtain of our Saturday morning opera at 10am.
Siskiyou Music Hall is JPR's classical music for the afternoon, including a mix of favorites from the standard repertoire plus a healthy dose of lesser-known composers and pieces.
Performance Today features two hours of live concerts by famous artists in concert halls around the globe and from the American Public Media studios as well as interviews, news and features.
