“Boston Herald Drive,” which airs from 7 to 9 a.m. weekdays, will update news, weather and traffic every 20 minutes. News anchor Matt Fitzgerald says it’s akin to putting the broadcast into “hyperdrive.”

John Sapochetti joins Adriana Cohen as co-host of “Boston Herald Drive.” Sapochetti will bring a more liberal point of view to mix it up with Cohen’s conservative take.
“I will bring a populist progressive feel to complex issues” said Sapochetti, who promises to deliver some good, old sensibilities from his native Somerville. “I know how to find a good sub,” he joked.
Boston Herald Radio Executive Producer Tom Shattuck sees the new morning pair as a natural fit. “There is a palpable, mutual respect,” he said. “This will not be two hours of pundit brow-beating. These are real people, and we are all about real on Herald Radio.”

“I love the chance to broaden all of our horizons a bit,” Villani said. “It is a big world and there are big conversations to have.”
Meanwhile, Shattuck will power up a multimedia center in the Herald’s City Hall Bureau to bring you live reports every day from high above City Hall Plaza.
