In November, a long-requested program comes to the TPR airwaves, plus there’s even more opportunity to hear the news of our region.

A new evening program lineup begins on November 4, with program changes coming to all TPR stations (excepting KTXI 90.1 FM and KPAC 88.3 FM). In San Antonio, listeners who miss our noon broadcast of “The Source” will be able to catch an encore broadcast of the program at 7:00, followed by “Texas Standard” at 8:00. Then at 9:00, Joshua Johnson hosts “1A,” a program that convenes conversations about the most important issues of our time.

With a name inspired by the First Amendment, "1A" explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports, and humor. "1A's" goal is to act as a national mirror -- taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be.

On KSTX 89.1 FM, “1A” takes the place of “Fresh Air” on weeknights at 9:00. Because of the Monday-Thursday schedule of “The Source,” listeners will still hear the Friday edition of “Fresh Air” at 7 p.m. “Fresh Air” continues to be broadcast at 2 p.m. Monday-Thursday on KSTX 89.1 FM.

On TPR stations outside of South Texas, the new program lineup includes “1A” at 7:00, followed by “Texas Standard” at 8 p.m., and then “Fresh Air” remains in its 9 p.m. timeslot.

The programming decision was based on general feedback from listeners, as well as focused discussion with TPR’s Community Advisory Board, a non-governing committee whose aim is to provide feedback on programming and activities to TPR management and staff.
