Lakeshore Public Radio Launches New Midday Lineup

As Lakeshore Public Radio reaches the halfway point of our 13th year on the air, we’ve already confirmed an expansion of the over-the-air broadcast signal is nearly complete (learn more here). Now we’re excited to announce several new programs are set to begin airing Monday, April 4 that will provide you and other listeners with even more news and information from distinguished NPR and Vox podcasts not aired anywhere else in Northwest Indiana or Chicagoland.

New Programs

Today Explained LogoOn Point unites distinct and provocative voices with passionate discussion as it confronts the stories that are at the center of what is important in the world today. Leaving no perspective unchallenged, On Point opens with a news brief analyzing the day's biggest stories, followed by an in-depth conversation decoding a single topic with newsmakers, thinkers, and callers, and closes with compelling personal reactions to news and important issues, including radio diaries, excerpts from speeches, or special series segments.

The Takeaway LogoThe Takeaway is a daily national news program focused on you. What you know and what you share helps to shape our daily discussion. You can hear us weekdays across America (check out our station map below - all times Monday through Friday unless otherwise indicated). The Takeaway is driven by America's national conversation — if a conversation connects or you have a valuable perspective, we want you to share your experience. These contributions help us deliver fresh insights and analysis on the day’s news.

The World LogoThe World's unique editorial perspective brings energy and passion to each day's broadcast. The goal: to take us beyond borders and boundaries, and fire up our curiosity about a fascinating, messy, contentious, and beautiful planet. It's about exploration and risk, war and peace, fun and folly, and how our daily drama plays out around the globe.

Today Explained LogoToday, Explained is a daily explainer podcast. Hosts Sean Rameswaram and Noel King will guide you through the most important stories of the day.
