WOUB AM is changing its weekday format to news/talk/information.

PRI's The Takeaway, which previously aired 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., has now been extended to 9 a.m., followed by WOUB's community-hosted talk program, Conversations from Studio B.

Various shows fill the 9:30 a.m. - 10 a.m. slot, including some programs that aired years ago on 1340 AM, such as Dialogue and Cambridge Forum.

Between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., we'll have up-to-date news coverage from the BBC World Service, followed by PRI's Here and Now during the noon hour.

The BBC's World Have Your Say, a "global conversation" hosted by Ros Atkins, Madeleine Morris and Rachel Harvey, airs at 1 p.m., followed at 2 p.m. by PRI's To the Point, a fast-paced, news-based program hosted by Warren Olney.

At 3 p.m., stay tuned for public radio favorites such as This American Life (Mondays), Studio 360 (Tuesdays), Tech Nation (Wednesdays), Prime Time Radio (Thursdays) and Living on Earth (Fridays).

Between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., we'll continue to bring you the BBC Newshour and PRI's The World. The 6 p.m. hour will feature Smiley and West (Mondays), Soundprint (Tuesdays), The Changing World (Wednesdays), WOUB's student-produced Sportsbeat (Thursdays) and The Commonwealth Club of California (Fridays).

During the month of August, we will broadcast news coverage from the BBC World Service between 7 p.m. and midnight. Starting Sept. 6,  tune into our long-running student music program, The Nightshift, airing the best in college alternative rock.

We hope you enjoy the change in programming and welcome your comments. Post them here or email radio@woub.org.
