figured it out..


i began listening to wdet-fm about two years ago because i wanted to get plugged into what’s happening in the world and i’ve had enough with the traditional news outlets like ABC/CBS/CNN/NBC/Etc.

what i like about public radio is the the local news and syndicated news from NPR, All Things Considered and Morning Edition for example. i like the content syndicated from the BBC.

i like that public radio news is generally straight-forward. it isn’t generally sensationalized. celebrity stories aren’t that urgent. i get a snippet of what happened, a little of both sides of an issue, then the next subject. if it requires more elaboration, it gets a ten minute segment on All Things Considered.

i don’t think there’s a need to beat the “news” to death with 24/7 coverage like the all-news stations do.
