KQED-FM 88.5 and KALW 91.7 are among the outlets picked by National Public Radio to participate in a major news experiment backed by $3 million in support from foundations, according to paidContent.org.

With USAToday.com editor Joel Sucherman at the helm, each station will focus in-depth on one major issue, such as green energy, health care or immigration, to name a few examples. The coverage will have a strong local focus for each station, but will also have national relevance.

Bay Area Media News,


  1. To the first commentator… WTF?

    KALW is an NPR affiliate, has been carrying NPR news before KQED switched from music to news/talk.

  2. I guess this means KALW has joined NPR. That means news coverage that conforms to the nonprofits that fund NPR. Don't question global warming or teacher unions, or you'll lose your funding. Comform!!! Don't question authority!
