Upcoming Changes to NPR's Morning Edition

Aug 10, 2018

Across the country, NPR is implementing changes to its program clock, the template used to sync NPR's programming with local stations.  This will determine what you hear and when you hear it, so it may take some getting used to. 

On Monday, August 13, you'll begin to notice the changes during Morning Edition.  By eliminating one newcast each hour, you'll have the opportunity to hear even more in-depth segments.  This change will offer the best mix of each day's interviews and stories, while simeltaneously providing more variety in the news and increasing flexibility.  As always, you can expect our local content to be seamlessly incorporated into the national broadcast.

Here's a rundown of what to expect:

Newscasts

The most significant change will be related to newscasts; instead of hearing three newscasts each hour, you will only hear two.  The first will start at the beginning of each hour and the second will start 30 minutes past each hour.  You'll hear headlines from NPR and KEDM, as well as the latest weather forecast.

KEDM News

The other exciting change has allowed for more local news programming.  You'll hear even more in-depth reports and interviews focusing on the important issues that are specific to our region.  Throughout the morning, these features will be woven in at different times each day, but they will frequently appear at 6:34, 6:45, 7:45, 8:34, and 8:45.

Marketplace Morning Report

Luckily, if you miss Marketplace Morning Report at 6:50, you can still catch it at 7:50! 

We know many of our listeners rely heavily on KEDM to get their mornings started right.  Whether its telling you what time to get up or when you're running late, KEDM is always there to keep you on track-- and that won't change.  We know that all change takes some getting used to, but we promise we will continue to do our very best to make sure you're still getting everything you need to know from KEDM.
