OPB Radio is expanding its news lineup with the addition of two shows to its morning lineup: “Here and Now,” from 9 to 10am and “World Have Your Say” from 10 to 11am beginning Monday, January 15.

“Here and Now,” hosted by veteran award-winning broadcaster Robin Young, is a daily hour-long program that combines the best in news journalism with intelligent, broad-ranging conversation to form a fast-paced program that updates the news from the morning and adds important conversations on public policy and foreign affairs, science and technology and the arts.

“World Have Your Say” is a groundbreaking, live global interactive program on OPB Radio weekdays from 10 to 11am and online 24/7. It invites listeners and online users to share their views and questions on key issues with a worldwide audience. The program features leading global figures, experts and correspondents who are also invited to take questions and comments from the audience.

“These programs are a superb addition to our news lineup,” OPB President and CEO Steve Bass. “I’m confident that these two hours of stimulating discussion will become must-hears for our very discerning audience.”
