Alabama Public Radio to Eliminate PRI Shows, Including This American Life

 
Right off the bat let me ease your mind if you're in the Birmingham area. This does not include WBHM.

Alabama Public Radio will eliminate Public Radio International shows from its schedule, dropping This American Life and The World, reports Tuscaloosanews.com. Director Elizabeth Brock said the decision was based in part on budget concerns. APR will fill the gaps left in its schedule by adding Radiolab and an additional hour of All Things Considered. - See more at: http://www.current.org/2013/08/alabama-network-will-drop-public-radio-international-shows/#sthash.Jk0IJTnV.dpuf

According to Tuscaloosa News.Com , and confirmed by former WBHM super-host Tanya Ott, Alabama Public Radio will eliminate Public Radio International shows from its schedule, dropping This American Life and The World.

Director Elizabeth Brock said the decision was based in part on budget concerns. APR will fill the gaps left in its schedule by adding Radiolab and an additional hour of All Things Considered.

Brett Tannehill "...and just to be double clear ... these are not changes at WLRH 89.3FM in Huntsville either. we continue to carry TAL and The World, along with Radiolab, TED, SciFri. we were also already carrying the 6pm hour of All Things Considered. APR has a repeater in Huntsville, but we are not affiliated."
