Joshua Johnson Moves On from 1A
Joshua Johnson has announced he will step down as host of WAMU's and NPR’s national radio show 1A to join MSNBC early next year. But he's confident 1A won't miss a step. "This show is not about me. It’s not about a person," Johnson said on-air at the end of Tuesday’s show. "It’s about speaking freely, and finding the courage to listen. That principle will remain." His last day in the host chair will be on Dec. 20. Todd Zwillich will fill in until a new host is named .

Year-end Fundraising: Good x 2
The programs you hear on KGOU shine light on issues in the news and bring you enlightening stories of impact. This holiday season we’re shining light on important work being done to combat hunger in our communities.

One in four children and one in six adults in Oklahoma experience food insecurity -- they don't know when they'll get their next meal -- according to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

You have an opportunity to help. Right now, your donation in any amount to KGOU supports the fearless, fact-based reporting and great entertainment you rely on, and it also activates a gift of 40 meals from the law firm of Phillips Murrah to the food bank. Our goal is 500 donations to KGOU and 20,000 meals for hungry Oklahomans.

This partnership of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Phillips Murrah, KGOU and you presents an opportunity to strengthen our communities and impact the important work we do together.

APM Reports presents Uprooted: The 1950s Plan to Erase Indian Country, KGOU's Sunday Radio Matinee on Dec. 1 at 12 p.m.
