Starting July 1st, "Here & Now" comes to WHQR

When Talk of the Nation was created more than 20 years ago, during the first Gulf War, call-in talk programming was still new to public radio. 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.

NPR is discarding the enlightening, wonderful program, Talk of the Nation and Neal Conan, the fine unbiased, gentleman journalist. 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.
