Beginning Monday, May 10, the program will air every weekday at 3 p.m. on 90.9 FM with a new host and a new format.

Meghna Chakrabarti will be the lead host of Radio Boston. Chakrabarti, since her beginnings in 2002 as a producer for On Point, has grown quickly and formidably as a radio force and voice in Boston, in recent days filling in as host on WBUR's national, daily news program, Here & Now.

Chakrabarti's role as lead host leaves room for many additional WBUR voices, including those of WBUR's corps of reporters and young, emerging voices like those of Adam Ragusea and Andrew Phelps.

Iris Adler will serve as executive producer of Radio Boston, having served New England Cable News as both managing and executive editor for the past 18 years. Adler is one of the most experienced and accomplished broadcast news and public affairs executives in Boston.

Mark Navin will remain senior producer and director of the new iteration of the program. Navin has positioned Radio Boston for the major transition to a daily format.

Contributors Ragusea and Jessica Alpert will fill the respective roles of reporter/associate producer and assistant producer. Tim Skoog will remain the technical director.

Paul La Camera is the WBUR general manager.

This program aired on March 1, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
