In an effort to bring more news to the middle of the day, NPR announced today that Talk of the Nation will end its 21-year run, on July 01, 2013. Science Friday will continue as an independent program, and will retain its Friday 2-4 Eastern Time broadcast spot.
While our sympathies are with our colleagues on the Talk of the Nation staff, we’re excited about the future and look forward to continuing what we do best: reporting on the latest developments in science and technology.
Despite a downward trend in radio listenership, Science Friday is thriving. Our aggressive push into new technologies has brought our content to new people, many of whom are not regular public radio listeners. We have one of the largest podcasting audiences in public radio, and the largest number of Twitter followers of any public radio program. We have an active and engaged Facebook fan community, and our website attracts tens of thousands of unique visitors each week. Our fans are passionate, loyal, and engaged.
As supporters, listeners, and advocates of Science Friday, I’m sure many of you are wondering what you can do to help. First, spread the word by sharing our content with your friends, family, and colleagues, so that we continue to grow our audience and meet new people. Second, advocate for Science Friday by reaching out to your local station and NPR and telling them how much you value us. Third, make a donation to Science Friday or to your local station to sustain carriage of Science Friday in your community.
