An Update About KUER’s 9 a.m. Hour

Remember three weeks ago? What a different place and time it was.

On March 6, I announced that KUER had put the BBC OS on temporary hiatus. The reason? We couldn’t air this program in its usual Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. time slot, due to the three-week gap between when the United States and the United Kingdom each observe daylight saving time. 

In other words, the BBC World Service’s “interim” schedule fed OS live at 10 a.m. Mountain Time (when we air 1A). 

Fast forward to today, and our world is a very different place. As we all grapple with a new reality amid the coronavirus crisis, my KUER colleagues and I feel strongly that information from national and local sources is the most valuable service we can provide Utahns right now. 

For that reason, KUER will continue to air NPR’s Morning Edition in the 9-10 a.m. slot, Monday through Thursday. BBC OS will remain on indefinite hiatus from the main KUER program schedule. 

I know that many of our listeners have enjoyed a global perspective during the 9 a.m.o’clock hour. Please note: BBC OS is available every day from 9 - 11 a.m. on KUER-2, our 24/7 feed of BBC World Service. KUER-2 is available on your HD-compatible radio, our mobile app and on KUER.org. 

Thank you for listening. I would love your feedback on this and all of our programming. You can reach me at jmeyer@kuer.org or 801-581-6777.
