NPR is the only talk station I can even stomach for an extended period of time. Will listen to KTSA in the morning for awhile and get so tired of Trey Ware and his "balanced" approach...I may not get it, but I don't see NPR as having an ultra liberal bent...at least on Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Worth the pledge $$ in my opinion! Side note...I was in Boston last summer and have a friend that works at WGBH...she took me around to see the station and there's an NPR studio there...was after 10 PM when we went and all was empty, but lo and behold...Lisa Mullins was in the studio and I got to meet her. What a treat!

I don't know why I didn't ask you before...
but when does KSTX (NPR) talk about local news?
because I don't remember ever hearing talking about local news (unless I missed it)

Dopo. KSTX has LOADS of local news. Have you ever listened to it long enough to realize that?

They recently covered the BRAC expansion project on the eastside and had several city council members on the air to have lengthy discussions about this issue.

The Source covers a bunch of local issues.
They recently covered the BRAC expansion project on the eastside and had several city council members on the air to have lengthy discussions about this issue. Tnhey also talk about overcrowding in the county jails, talked about the toyota plant, the citiy's nursing homes and abuse, they've interviewed candidates for local positions like county commisioner, and talked to CPS about the Nuclear Energy project.

There's Living Green in San Antonio.

And about 4 times a day they have a bunch of announcements about local events (the community events calendar), weather and traffic.

Then there's Texas Matters, the newsmaker hour and the town halls that get recorded for it.

Need I go on?

how about you just tell me which ones are the shows that talk about local events

I listened to NPR today, and I felt like I had to change my "signature" again
