KPBS Midday Edition has shifted from talk to a
magazine-style format. The program will now air five days a week, starting at
noon until 1 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and from noon to 12:30 p.m. on
Fridays. The changes reflect the station’s priority to be more responsive to
daily and breaking news.
“KPBS Midday Edition as a magazine
program will be able to be more responsive to the issues of the day, as well as
having room for creative storytelling outside the studio with sound-rich
portraits from the San Diego community,” said Suzanne Marmion, KPBS Director of
News and Editorial Strategy. The new format will feature interviews with KPBS
reporters who have carefully researched, written, and reported on these issues
as well as stories from other public media entities. The primary focus of the
new interview format is to do mostly recorded interviews and fewer live
interviews. Live interviews will now occur based on editorial decisions and
depending on relevant events and stories.
KPBS Midday Edition will feature at least five
originally produced stories each day and will include a daily arts and culture
segment devoted to coverage of the arts in San Diego. The daily arts segment
will include information about exhibits coming to San Diego area museums, plays
coming to theaters across the county, authors speaking at local libraries and
bookstores, previews of San Diego’s top weekend events, and more music
KPBS Roundtable is now shown Fridays at 12:30 p.m. following KPBS Midday Edition.
