WBUR strives to serve the public, report the truth and enrich the lives of those in our communities. And, starting this year, we have made an important change to our morning lineup to serve you, our listeners, in meaningful new ways. Radio Boston, WBUR's signature hour of local news programming hosted by Tiziana Dearing, has moved up on the schedule to broadcast live at 11 a.m., in addition to continuing in its 3 p.m. time slot.
Radio Boston will now bring a local focus to the conversation from 11 a.m. to noon. Based in part on feedback from Members like you, we made this decision to help our listeners make the most sense of our increasingly complex and concentric worlds—local, national, and international—all before the lunch hour.
"Radio Boston is a place where we come together to talk and listen and learn from one another," says host Dearing. "In my three years as your host, I've embarked with you on daily quests, examining what matters and, equally important, why. Together, we make sense of big ideas, seek out new voices and understand this place we call home."
In addition to the schedule change, Radio Boston now has a new way to connect: You can sign up to text directly with Dearing and other staff members from the show. Your input will help shape the show's content and you will get an inside scoop on upcoming topics.
"We elevate the conversations happening in the boardrooms and the break rooms of Greater Boston," said Dearing. "We support community by clearing a space for people with fresh thinking, sharp minds, and stories that have yet to be told. From our new digs in Studio 2, I'm sending you well wishes for happy listening—and even better mornings!"
The morning schedule change brings deeper context around local issues to the WBUR lineup. We say good morning to many of you from 5 to 9 a.m. with Morning Edition, where we cover a range of topics with host Rupa Shenoy. We then go global with BBC Newshour at 9 a.m. and go deep with Meghna Chakrabarti and On Point at 10 a.m.
