KUOW is among the NPR stations pushing for changes

“A host, when news is breaking, actually needs to be able to interact live with a reporter on the scene and do live interviews with analysts as a story is unfolding,” said Jeff Hansen, program director for KUOW (94.9) in Seattle, and an independent coordinator for news-focused radio stations that carry NPR programs. “We owe a lot to Bob Edwards for setting exactly the right tone for the first 25 years. But I think there is probably wide agreement in the public radio system that it is time for an evolutionary change.”

The P-I runs an NYT article. As Tom notes, now’s the time to let KUOW know what you think.

    Seriously, dude…. that would RULE!
