Special Programming Changes On HPPR Connect

Mar 21, 2020

Special COVID-19 programming to start on HPPR Connect.

High Plains Public Radio and HPPR Connect will run a special NPR program on COVID-19 Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22, on Connect at 6 p.m. CT; and in place of City Arts and Lectures on HPPR, Sunday night at 7 p.m. CT. Starting Monday night at 8 p.m. CT, Connect will begin carrying a new program from NPR, called The National Conversation with All Things Considered. It will focus on the COVID-19 situation, with the usual ATC hosts, incorporating social media, call-outs, two-ways, and other source material. It will supplant Fresh Air with Terry Gross, which will bump to the 9 p.m. CT hour on HPPR Connect.
