Washington D.C. – Federal News Radio 1500 AM and FederalNewsRadio.com today announced a programming realignment to help deliver more precise content to audiences online and on the radio.
In Depth with Francis Rose can now be heard weekday mornings from 8am – 10am, directly following The Federal Drive with Tom Temin which now airs from 6am – 8 am. Both shows can also be heard in the afternoon from 3 -5 pm (Federal Drive) and 5-7 pm (In Depth).
The changes allow Federal News Radio to expose its two strongest products to both drive-time audiences. Temin and Rose are veteran journalists who have decades of federal experience and can now offer even more analysis and insight on the most important federal news each day.
Program Director Lisa Wolfe says, “Realigning our resources allows us to reach the most people with the most news they need every day to do their jobs – at the times when they can best consume our radio product. It also gives our journalists more time to contribute to our website – which offers news and analysis 24/7.”
In addition, Federal news headlines will now be heard every fifteen minutes throughout the morning and afternoon, and the station has added two reporters, a new digital writer, and a new radio producer to further enhance the stations coverage of the federal marketplace and to continue to provide the top breaking federal news.
The new changes have been in effect since September 1st.
