We offer dozens of distinct news programs throughout the week. Many are incorporated into our presentation of the BBC World Service. Other programs for morning and evening rush come from American Public Media network (APM) and from the Public Radio Exchange (PRX) station program distribution system.
We’re always glad to take your calls to help locate stories you’ve heard on the air, and most features are accessible as recordings online the day after broadcast. Here are some links to get you started!
The World – 6 am & 6 pm weekdays
This program is a co-production of station GBH in Boston and PRX with special emphasis on reporting from the BBC and Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC). The program is completed toward the end of each weekday in north America and re-broadcast the morning following. Their website is www.TheWorld.org and equally accessible at their prior network address, www.PRI.org
Marketplace – 5 pm weekdays with features throughout the day
Marketplace is the premier news program from APM. In addition to the weeknight drivetime program, we offer Marketplace Tech at 6:55 am, Marketplace Morning Report at 7:50 am and the Marketplace Minute over the noon hour as part of The Classical Cafe. Marketplace features can be heard again at www.Marketplace.org
