Keeping The Mission, Changing The Time

NPR's 'Tell Me More is changing the time of its daily broadcast feed.

There's been a big change here, although it may not be noticeable to most of you. We are changing the time we record our live program — from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

That means we get to come in a bit later.

So, why are we doing this?

I'll let Tell Me More Supervising Senior Producer Teshima Walker explain ...

Thanks, Michel. Teshima Walker, here.

The reason we changed our broadcast time is simple: the later feed will allow us to attract more West Coast guests and regular contributors (commentators, analysts, reporters, etc.). We'll also have more time to pursue the program's mission and craft "distinct" conversations when breaking news happens.

There will be more sound-rich, pre-produced segments to grab listener attention. And, we're aiming to make Tell Me More with Michel Martin a listening destination at mid-day.

So, please keep listening and tell us what you think.
