The program built a large and loyal audience over its history. The TOTN staff has been NPR’s go-to team for coverage of breaking news from 9/11 to the shootings last December in Newtown, Connecticut. Stations and listeners have relied on TOTN for quality coverage, high-caliber guests and enriching conversation.</p> Tue, 18 Jun 2013 15:16:18 +0000 Bob Workmon 38393 at http://whqr.org Starting July 1st, "Here & Now" comes to WHQR Friday Feedback for May 24, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-may-24-2013 <p></p><p></p><p>I’ve spent some time this week looking over some the comments made by listeners when they pledge at <a href="http://whqr.org"><strong>whqr.org</strong></a>.

This program made me feel NPR was fair and balanced but I know differently especially highlighted when 91.3 brought in Diane Rehm, who no NPR employee can honestly say is fair and balanced, just too much to ask of most of today's journalists. This is a great loss. Shame on NPR.</p> Fri, 12 Apr 2013 10:52:49 +0000 Cleve Callison 34703 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for April 12, 2013 Friday Feedback for April 5, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-april-5-2013 <p></p><p></p><p><em>Note: this text is a somewhat expanded version of the audio as aired.</em></p><p>Listener Ned wrote from Topsail:</p><blockquote><p>NPR is ending Talk of the Nation on July 1st. Is it possible that WHQR will at that time broadcast both hours of the Diane Rehm show? That would be great.</p> Fri, 05 Apr 2013 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 34290 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for April 5, 2013
