You may have noticed some changes to your Morning Edition listening experience this week. That's because NPR has changed the timing of their 'clock.' It's the first change to Morning Edition's clock since 2014.

NPR provides 'clocks' for most of their national shows, so local stations like KOSU know when to best air local news, weather and information.

This curated event will feature five story tellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors, building community by bringing entertainment and enlightenment together.

Oklahoma voters will pick their primary candidates on June 26 and weigh in on a state question about legalizing medical marijuana. The political heat will build through the summer with high-profile endorsements, big-money ad blitzes and campaign promises.

And while a lot of political journalism starts with politicians, reporters at NPR member stations in Oklahoma are working together to change the conversation.

With the 2018 election cycle underway, Oklahoma’s public service radio journalism organizations have brought their newsrooms together to launch Oklahoma Engaged: Project Public Office.

Public Radio International (PRI) and WNYC announced on Tuesday that reporter and columnist Tanzina Vega has been named as host of The Takeaway, the nationally-syndicated public radio news program heard on 250 stations around the country. She begins on May 7.

In addition to previously announced program changes, KOSU is proud to deliver the new radio edition of the popular podcast The Daily to listeners, every weekday at 6:30 p.m., beginning Monday, April 2.

The New York Times and American Public Media collaborated earlier this year to extend the audio news report’s following of 4.5 million monthly unique listeners to the radio audience.

We're happy to offer several special benefits for KOSU members during the 2018 Spring Membership Drive (taking place between Wednesday, March 7 to Wednesday, March 14).
