Minnesota Public Radio Shifts Saturday Schedule
January 30, 2009 at 5:02 AM (PT)
MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO shuffles its SATURDAY lineup to fill the gap left by parent AMERICAN PUBLIC MEDIA's cancellation of "WEEKEND AMERICA." The changes take effect FEBRUARY 7.
The new lineup bumps "THIS AMERICAN LIFE" up two hours to 1p CT and adds an airing of "WAIT, WAIT... DON'T TELL ME" at noon SATURDAYS, with both shows repeating on SUNDAYS. The new NPR "MIDMORNING WEEKEND" will fill "THIS AMERICAN LIFE"'s former 3p slot.
