Programming changes begin this weekend on MPR News

Update (Sept. 19, 2020): Some of the programming changes outlined below will be affected by today’s special coverage following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Starting this weekend, MPR News is introducing a new weekend programming schedule that gives listeners more hours of live news and a refreshed lineup of public radio’s best weekly shows.

With so many important news stories converging this fall, we are renewing our emphasis on live news programming by extending Weekend Edition by one hour on both Saturdays and Sundays and adding an hour of BBC NewsHour on Saturdays right before All Things Considered. This gives listeners more chances to hear up-to-the minute reporting and critical news analysis from our news partners around the globe. 

But weekends are also a time to take a break from the headlines. Here are more details about the changes:

ByteDance and TikTok didn’t immediately respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.

Separately, Fox reporter Charles Gasparino tweeted on Sunday that any TikTok deal would probably require negotiations between the U.S. government and its Chinese counterpart to succeed.

    The 10 best tech stocks to buy for 2020.
