Talk of the Nation and Tell Me More

NPR made the difficult decision to wind down production of Talk of the Nation at the end of June. Over its 21-year run, Talk of the Nation has made a powerful contribution to public radio and set the standard for high quality call-in talk programming. The show also created a model that spurred many stations to launch their own call-in shows.

As the reach and impact of those shows has expanded, NPR has concluded that it can best serve public radio by concentrating its resources on produced news programming with reported stories and hosted interviews that appeal to listeners on radio and emerging digital platforms.

Tell Me More, a program which focuses on the way we live, intersect and collide in a culturally diverse world, moves to weeknights at 9pm. Each day's show features a variety of segments examining U.S. and international news, ideas and people; its range of topics covers politics, faith and spirituality, the family, finance, arts and culture and lifestyle.
