‘Here & Now’ Makes News

As you’ve probably heard by now, Here & Now will begin a new partnership with NPR to expand the show to two hours, and add a new co-host, the awesome Jeremy Hobson, who will be wrapping up at Marketplace Morning Report.

We are humbled and honored. Our excitement is tempered only by news of other programming changes.

Meanwhile, we promise to continue to bring you the same muscular coverage of breaking news, with all its messiness and unpredictability, as well as the conversations you’ve told us keep you stuck in your driveways — whether or not you have a car.

Change is always interesting, but it occurs to us this change is happening in the perfect season: a time of renewal and new growth. Or as I like to call it, “do overs.”

So here we go, and we hope you come with us. Without your support, we wouldn’t have gotten this far.

Thank you.

-Robin Young

    Outtake from the discussion between Terry Gross and Robin Young –
     
    Gross:  Robin, I have to say that I’m impressed at the amount of vacation you take.
     
    Young:  Terry, no one can compete with you.  Dave Davies and David Bianculli even fill in to introduce your reruns of interviews. 
     
    Gross:  Don’t forget all the book and movie reviews at the end of the shows.  That is less obvious than padding the shows with BBC reports. 
     
    Young:  Thanks for the tip.  I’m also impressed with your forethought to interview all sorts of old musicians.  They are dropping like flies now and that means you can use the old interviews as tributes.
     
    Gross:  And don’t forget that you can play some of their music too.

      You guys are just super hilarious! Isn’t Terry’s show all about reviews?! And CONGRATULATIONS to Robin, this was just bound to happen as your show is one of the best on public radio. Keep up the good work….and eh! don’t forget the book reviews at the end of the shows!
