In the next couple of weeks, KCPW will be reshuffling its weekend programming with the recent announcements of two show cancellations.
In August, Public Radio International announced that the Bob Edwards Weekend radio program will cease production at the end of this month. The show, which had a home on KCPW for nearly ten years, featured in-depth conversations, performances, and the occasional documentary. Edwards, a public radio veteran and master interviewer, is investigating a number of new opportunities, including a podcast, but hasn’t made a decision yet about what he will do in the future.
Wits, the live comedy, music and sketch show hosted by John Moe, is also coming to an end. The program kicked off in 2010 as a stage show before moving to public radio stations around the country. American Public Media announced the decision in July, and there are signs that a live and podcast version of Wits may resurface down the line.
Details to come next week on how we’ll be filling the gaps in our schedule left by these changes. Questions? Don’t hesitate to Contact us.
