"On Being" ends public radio show after nearly 20-year-run

After nearly two decades, On Being is ending its run as a weekly radio program on public radio. Its last radio show will be on June 23.

Host Krista Tippett made the announcement late last week, noting the show isn't completely going away. The program, formerly known as Speaking of Faith, will transition from a weekly radio show to a seasonal podcast schedule.

"For me personally, this is an energizing and necessary transition," the Shawnee, Okla. native said. "I happily turned 60 in 2020. After living on the deadlines involved in hosting and executive producing 52 weeks of programming a year for close to 20 years, it is time for me to create a more sustainable flow of life and work, and to be differently present to this moment in the life of the world."

Listeners can keep up with the future of The On Being Project at onbeing.org.

KOSU is currently evaluating options to replace On Being in our programming lineup.
