[Denver/November 13 2009] - Public radio station KUVO announces plans to air "The Takeaway" a new national morning news show that delivers the news and analysis you need to catch up, start your day, and prepare for what's ahead. Each morning, John Hockenberry and Celeste Headlee convene with a virtual "watercooler," of sparking critical conversations about the day's top news, taking live reports from the field, and fielding commentary and analysis from a cast of contributors around the table and around the globe that embody our multicultural nation and world. The vast newsgathering resources of editorial collaborators the BBC World Service, the "New York Times" and WGBH Boston allow for deep access to local intelligence and a range of perspectives, while the show's interactivity on-air and online allows for unsurpassed use of authentic voices in an American news program. "The Takeaway" will begin airing live weekdays beginning January 4, 2010 from 5am until 8am on KUVO 89.3FM in Denver, 89.7FM in Summit County and in Vail on the new station KVJZ 88.5FM.
"I am really pleased that "The Takeaway" will become part of our morning programming lineup," says COO/Program Director Carlos Lando. "It delivers the news of the day in a dynamic, conversational style that is broadening and diversifying the public radio news audience. Throughout each hour we will have local news updates and public affairs information that will help us to better connect people and resources in our community. This is a very exciting addition to our program schedule.
The Takeaway is a unique partnership of global news leaders. It is a co-production of PRI (Public Radio International) and WNYC Radio in collaboration with the BBC World Service, The New York Times and WGBH Boston.
