New programs to WBHM:

“Reveal” – Sundays at 3 PM
Journalists at The Center for Investigative Reporting reveal government fraud and waste of taxpayer funds, human rights violations, environmental degradation and threats to public safety. Consistently shining a bright light on injustice and protecting the most vulnerable in our society.
“Snap Judgement” – Fridays at 7 PM
Snap Judgment is a themed, weekly NPR storytelling show focused on presenting compelling personal stories – mixing killer beats with real drama to produce cinematic, dramatic and kick-ass radio.
Further adjustments to the already-airing programs include a rebroadcasting of “Fresh Air” at 7 PM Mondays – Thursdays and an extra hour of “Weekend Edition” – Saturday and Sundays from 7-10 AM.
And for those who need a little more relaxation in their schedule, there will also be an extra hour of jazz music Monday-Thursday starting at 8 PM and Saturdays starting at 7 PM.
And now for a list of discontinued shows… But don’t worry, although they won’t be heard through your radio, you can still live stream them online:
