St. Louis Public Radio and Quincy Public Radio Announce Program Changes:
The World Returns, Q to Replace Tell Me More
St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU and Quincy Public Radio | 90.3 WQUB will be making the following program changes effective Monday, August 4, 2014:
PRI’s The World returns to the St. Louis Public Radio lineup beginning Monday, August 4, 2014 and will air Monday – Friday from 2-3 p.m. As a result of this change, St. Louis Public Radio will no longer air Here & Now.
PRI’s The World is your world revealed. It’s about the events, trends, and personal tales that connect us around the globe. Marco Werman hosts an hour of surprising angles, unexpected insights, and engaging voices to illuminate what’s going on in the world, and why it matters.
The program Q will debut on St. Louis Public Radio on Monday, August 4, 2014, and will air Monday- Friday in the 7-8 p.m. time slot vacated as the result of NPR ceasing the production of Tell Me More.
Q, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, is an energetic daily arts, culture and entertainment magazine that takes listeners on a smart and surprising ride, interviewing personalities and tackling the cultural issues that matter. Q brings big names, big ideas, and those paving the way on the cultural landscape. Q is produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and distributed by Public Radio International (PRI).
“We are sad to see Tell Me More come to an end,” said General Manager Tim Eby, “but we are excited to introduce Q to the St. Louis market and bring PRI’s The World back to our weekday program schedule.”
