You know, sometime you have one of those weeks when everyone thinks you're just swell. . . Yeah, this is not one of those weeks.

Listener Beverly wrote on Monday: "Cokie Roberts is just the latest NPR commentator offending my husband and me. We listen to NPR for news. We do not listen for an individual commentator's personal assessment.
“To be biased without even realizing it...for example, in asking a leading question...is sometimes understandable. Cokie makes no excuses for imposing her opinions.

We received some calls and messages on Monday when listeners heard Donald Trump’s full speech to the Detroit Economic Club on our air. Some pointed out that there were some odd moments, such as when our local announcement aired right on top of NPR. Some wondered why we decided to pre-empt Here and Now to carry it.

A communications snafu caused us to miss some of the normally scheduled program cues.

Robert Siegel, Senior Host of NPR’s All Things Considered, starts his day with what he regards as indispensable daily reads: The New York Times and The Washington Post.

NPR has announced that President and CEO Gary Knell, who has been in that office for less than two years, will be leaving this fall to become CEO of the National Geographic Society. WHQR covered this story yesterday. But what will it mean for stations, and for listeners? I'm afraid my crystal ball needs to go to the shop for repairs. I have been impressed with Gary's leadership. I have heard him speak and we've exchanged emails, but I've never met him. My station manager colleagues and I have...
