| No Comments

Chicago public radio station WBEZ-FM (91.5) is adding two new programs to its lineup, effective Sept. 21: "Here & Now," a national daily news and arts magazine; and "Marketplace Monday," a weekly extension of "Marketplace," which focuses on personal finance issues. Additionally, WBEZ plans to move "Marketplace Morning Report," a daily 10-minute business news brief, to 8:50 a.m. weekdays to bolster the station's business and economic coverage. "Here & Now," hosted by Robin Young, will air weekdays at 1 p.m. "Marketplace Money" will air on Sundays at 2 p.m. "As is the case with our other programming, both shows bring depth and context to daily events, but do so with a style that's credible, conversational and creative," said Steve Edwards, WBEZ acting program director.
