WHYY-FM’s RADIO TIMES, one of the most respected weekday interview programs on regional radio , will soon become a television program as well. RADIO TIMES ON TV WITH MARTY MOSS-COANE, a one-hour weekly series featuring the best interviews from the radio show, will be broadcast on TV12 Fridays at 10:30 p.m. beginning December 19.

The first program will feature Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison discussing her new book “Love;” Philadelphia Mayoral candidate Sam Katz reflecting on the campaign; and Nathaniel Kahn talking about his documentary, “My Architect,” about his father, noted architect Louis Kahn.

The television program will usually feature three interview segments drawn from the previous week’s radio programs, and will reflect the wide range of topics typical of RADIO TIMES.

RADIO TIMES, heard live on 91FM weekdays from 10 a.m. to noon, is widely recognized for its timely and provocative discussions. The program covers social issues, current events, public policy, books, films, and much more. Program host Marty Moss-Coane is known for her ability to blend her own thought-provoking questions with comments from callers to create a program that Philadelphia Magazine has called “the best radio program in Philadelphia.”  

WHYY Vice President and Station Manager Paul Gluck says putting RADIO TIMES on television is another important addition to WHYY’s unmatched news and public affairs service.

“The television program will bring Marty’s insightful interviews to a whole new audience, while radio listeners will now have a chance to watch interviews they might have missed during the week.”

RADIO TIMES ON TV will retain much of the look and feel of a radio program. Moss-Coane and her guests will continue to talk across the table in Studio 2 of WHYY’s Technology Center on Independence Mall in Philadelphia. The multimedia studio, which was designed with top-of-the-line radio acoustics, is also equipped with television lighting and small, remotely-controlled, TV cameras. One operator in the adjoining control room handles all of the camera controls and TV switching.

All content for the production is developed by the RADIO TIMES staff: Host and Executive Producer Marty Moss-Coane, Senior Producers Susan Greenbaum and Alan Tu and Producer Devorah Lissek.

Moss-Coane is already known to TV12 viewers as the host of televised political discussions, town meetings and debates, including the recent live election night coverage of the Philadelphia mayoral election results. As host of RADIO TIMES since its debut in 1987, she has earned praise for her versatility and engaging conversations, whether she’s interviewing celebrities, moderating aggressive political foes or sharing the feelings of a mother who lost a child to violence.

Producer of RADIO TIMES ON TV WITH MARTY MOSS-COANE is Patty Hartman. Executive Producer is Trudi Brown.
