DC Radio: WAMU Refreshes Evening Line-Up

Beginning Monday, June 19, WAMU 88.5 FM refreshing its weeknight line-up of news and culture programs from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The non-com will kick-off each evening with a curated one-hour version of 1A each weeknight at 8 p.m. Public radio’s fastest-growing program takes a look at the day’s top news and provides a fresh perspective on the problems facing our country, and how we might come together to solve them.

WAMU says it will continue airing some of the best one-hour shows that public radio offers at 9 p.m. weeknights, retaining variety in the evening schedule and an additional airing of your favorite weekend shows:
  • Mondays: Ted Radio Hour
  • Tuesdays: Special Programming
  • Wednesdays: This American Life
  • Thursdays: Reveal
  • Fridays: Dinner Party Download
On Point will move an hour later to 10 p.m., providing late-night listeners with a recap and analysis of the day’s biggest stories. We’ll end our broadcast day with an international news focus with As It Happens at 11 p.m., followed by a new timeslot for The World at midnight, where host Marco Werman links global events directly to the American agenda.
