Radio program updates – KTOO
KTOO is making some impactful changes to the KTOO-FM AND KRNN schedule this fall. This is the result of a few factors, including the availability of new programs, cost changes, and the stopping of production of some older shows. Our main motivation, however, is to bring more diverse voices and experiences to the airwaves. Some of the key changes that will take place in KTOO 104.3 on October 1, 2021 are highlighted below. Check back soon for more information on additional changes to KTOO 104.3 and some new offerings on KRNN starting November 1, 2021.

8 p.m. Wednesday (beginning of October 6): Our political body. Created and hosted by award-winning journalist Farai Chideya, Our Body Politic unabashedly focuses on reporting not only on how women of color experience major political events today, but also how they impact those same issues. . The weekly episodes feature in-depth conversations about economics, health, politics, education, environment, and the most premonitory issues, as all issues are women’s issues. Produced by KCRW, KPCC and KQED.
2 p.m. Saturday: Bottom line. The past never passed. Each title has a story. Join us every week to travel back in time to understand the present. These are stories you can feel and sounds you can see from the moments that shaped our world. Produced by NPR.
5 p.m. Saturday: Code switch and Life Kit.
- Code switch are the fearless conversations about the breed you’ve been waiting for. Hosted by journalists of color, this NPR show tackles the subject of race with empathy and humor. We explore how race affects every part of society – from politics and pop culture to history, food and everything in between. This podcast gets us all part of the conversation because we’re all part of the story. Code Switch was named Apple Podcast’s very first show of the year in 2020.
- Life Kit is the show that recognizes that everyone needs a little help as a human being. From sleeping to saving money to parenting and more, we chat with the experts for the best advice. Topics will often revolve around race and identity, but we’re always here to help listeners get through life together. Produced by NPR.
7 p.m. Saturday: Radio time for moths. The Moth Radio Hour features our most beloved tales and the stories behind the stories. The series debuted in 2009 and is now broadcast on more than 500 stations across the country. Produced by Atlantic Public Media.
