Did you know that every public radio program has a clock? Broadcast clocks are set templates that stations like ours use to track the timing of a show's stories and interviews, newscasts, and funding credits each day.

NPR has changed  a few of their show clocks, and the most obvious change in timing affects Morning Edition. The purpose is to help align the placement of new headlines and stories with the way people listen to radio today.  The new clock also provides WMRA with more flexibility to include the local news and info that's important to you.
