New Program Lineup on KSTX 89.1 FM


Beginning the week of April 1, listeners to KSTX 89.1 FM will hear several exciting new programs on the weekends, as well as an expanded edition of Texas Public Radio's award-winning program, "The Source."

Most prominently, "The Source" will now be heard Monday-Thursday at 3 p.m. on KSTX 89.1 FM. This award-winning program has been a part of the KSTX lineup since January, 2010, and with its expansion will become a daily, interactive fixture on KSTX. Listener feedback will be a vital part of the broadcast. You're invited to take part by calling 210-614-8980 during the broadcast, emailing thesource@tpr.org, or tweeting us @TPRSource.

In addition to "The Source," KSTX is adding five new programs to the weekend news lineup: BBC Newshour, TED Radio Hour, A Way With Words, Radiolab, and BackStory.

The BBC Newshour delivers an hour of headlines, commentary, and reporting from around the world, produced by one of the world's most respected journalism sources, the BBC. Tune in Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00.

Inspired by the worldwide TED Talk phenomenon, The TED Radio Hour is a journey through fascinating ideas, astonishing inventions, and new ways to think and create. Hosted by NPR's Guy Raz, The TED Radio Hour features TED Talk excerpts as well as interviews that delve deeper into the ideas explored on the show. Hear The TED Radio Hour Sundays at Noon on KSTX 89.1 FM.

A Way With Words is an upbeat hour-long show about language, examined through history, culture, and family. Word quizzes, language news, and talk about slang, grammar, word origins, and speaking well are the order of the day. A Way With Words airs Sunday mornings at 10:00 on KSTX 89.1 FM.

Radiolab, one of public radio's most successful programs, expands from a humble podcast and limited series to become a weekly fixture on the KSTX schedule. Each week the program experiments with sound and style to blend scientific discovery with culture and information. Hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, Radiolab can be heard Sunday afternoons at 1:00 on KSTX 89.1 FM.

For early morning risers, tune in Sunday mornings at 5:00 for BackStory, bringing historical perspective to the events happening around us today. Historians, people in the news, and callers each bring their own voices to the discussion each week.

In addition, some programs are moving on KSTX 89.1 FM:

Fronteras moves to Fridays at 3 p.m., followed by Texas Matters at 3:30.
This American Life moves to noon on Saturdays.
Marketplace Money moves to 2:00 on Saturday afternoons.
On the Media moves to 2:00 on Sunday afternoons.
Living On Earth moves to 8 p.m. on Sunday evenings.
