New Year, new clock 📻

Nadya Faulx
Yellowstone Public Radio

Yellowstone Public Radio is making small but — we think — significant changes to our broadcast clock.

Starting Monday, Jan. 3, listeners will have new opportunities to hear local news from our reporters and our partners at Montana Public Radio.

Tune in during Morning Edition with host Jess Sheldahl for local newscasts at the top and bottom of each hour starting at 5:04. We're adding an additional newscast at 9:04 to give listeners another chance to catch the news they need to start their days.

Stardatewill now air at 8:31 a.m., so if you set your clock to the celestial show, make note.

During All Things Considered with host Kay Erickson, listen for local newscasts at the top and bottom of the hour starting at 4:04. We're also adding another newscast at 7:04 ahead of Fresh Air.

While we'll no longer feature a local newscast at 18 minutes after the hour during Morning Edition or All Things Considered, we're taking time at the top of the hour to bring listeners a more robust lineup of local stories.

Change takes some getting used to, and though we hope you come to enjoy the new schedule, we want to hear your feedback! Let us know what's working, and what we can continue to improve upon into the new year. Our email is

Listen to YPR newscasts weekdays during Morning Edition at 5:04, 5:33, 6:04, 6:33, 7:04, 7:33, 8:04, and 9:04; during Here and Now at 12:04; during All Things Considered at 4:04, 4:33, 5:04, 5:33, 6:04; and during Fresh Air at 7:04.
