Aaron Read RIPR

Starting on August 18, 2015 we've added a new feature to the ripr.org homepage: you can download MP3 audio files of the three most recent local newscasts!  So if you just missed the news, but still want to get caught up on the most breaking of breaking developments, fear not - you can get it right from our website!

Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America, is this year’s featured speaker at Central Congregational Church’s annual Darrell West Lecture Series on Religion and Politics. The event, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for Thursday, February 12 at 6 p.m. at the church, which is located at 296 Angell  St., in Providence.

Starting on Monday Nov.17th, the clocks for Morning Edition, All Things Considered (both weekdays and weekends) and Weekend Edition  will be changing.  

Today's Engineer's Corner is co-authored with our Operations & Production Manager, James Baumgartner.  He and I are the ones directly responsible for organizing all the clock changes' impact on Rhode Island Public Radio, and we've put together this synopsis of what the changes mean for our listeners.

If you were listening to the 8pm newscast on Tuesday night (Sept.23) then you got to experience our new service that helps make sure your watch can be set to the most precise time possible!

Okay, that's not really what happened.  The newscast started out with the USNO's "time guy" (you can hear the automated time announces by dialing (719)567-6742 in Colorado; the DC numbers don't seem to work).

NPR ended production of Tell Me More on August 1st. We're sorry to see this great program come to an end, but we're glad to learn that host Michel Martin will continue at NPR. Her reporting will be part of Morning Edition and All Things Considered as well as online and at public events. With the end of Tell Me More, we have an opportunity to bring more international news to our weekday line-up.
