Two Programs Are Being Added To Our Lineup!

The New York Times' The Daily and Today, Explained, a new radio program from Vox, will join WVXU's weekday lineup amongst a few schedule changes.

“The Daily is a show that many have been requesting, but at 30 minutes long, it was a difficult fit before,” said Jenell Walton, Vice President of Content for Cincinnati Public Radio. “But Today, Explained is the perfect companion piece and we’re excited to bring these strong journalistic programs to our WVXU listeners.” 

Today, Explained

Each day, Today, Explained breaks down a single news story or cultural phenomenon—explaining it in an approachable, inspiring and helpful way. Fans of former NPR Morning Edition host Noel King will be happy to know that she is the new co-host of Today, Explained, along with longtime host Sean Rameswaram.

The Daily

Hosts Michael Barbaro and Sabrina Tavernise dive into one or two stories per episode, offering a deep, textured portrait of the characters and human stakes driving the news.
