OSWEGO -- Many people use a new year as a turning point to make changes, and NPR news/talk affiliate WRVO is no exception. The station announced several programming lineup changes today, which will take effect as of the first of the year.
Details were included in the station's latest "Program Points" e-newsletter. Here are the changes as described in that newsletter by WRVO's Leah Landry:
Programming Changes - Beginning January 1, 2013
The Campbell Conversations, with Grant Reeher, will no longer air Friday evenings at 6:30 p.m. or on Saturdays at 4 p.m. You will instead be able to enjoy the locally produced interview series each Sunday evening at 6 p.m. Campbell Conversations will still air with Earth Eats, which is moving from 4:30 p.m. on Saturday to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.
You can now hear Snap Judgment at 2 p.m. each Saturday afternoon. You may remember it occupying this slot a year ago.
Day 6 will take the place of the Campbell Conversations and Earth Eats and is now broadcast at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The BBC World Service will now start an hour earlier on weekends. You can enjoy starting at midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
As TED Radio Hour moves to a weekly show, it will be heard eachSunday at 4 p.m. and it has been announced that Guy Raz will host the program.
In addition to those changes in January, there are a few new offerings which will be coming along much sooner.
Among them, actor Alec Baldwin hosts a series called Here's the Thing, airing each Sunday over the next four weeks at 7pm. The program will offer "a unique look into the lives of some of today's most exciting performers." For this week's show, Baldwin interviews former Saturday Night Live cast member Kristen Wiig (local ties: Baldwin's mother lives in Camillus; Wiig grew up in Canandaigua and Rochester). Baldwin also visits with talk show host Dick Cavett to reflect on an entertainment career that has spanned five decades.
