Local news returns to 6:49 & 7:49 AM

NPR_Morning_EditionYou spoke, we listened!

After a month-long test of our new morning lineup, we’ve taken your feedback and created what we hope combines KCAW’s tradition of providing the best local, state, and national news available, with the predictability you’ve come to rely on from your community station.

While there’s much to like about where we’re headed with the morning schedule, many of us were happier with Local News at its original times at 6:49 and 7:49.
