WBAA to add two radio programs

Starting this week, WBAA Public Radio at Purdue will add two Saturday morning NPR radio programs.

At 10 a.m. Saturday (Oct. 7), WBAA will present a half-hour edition of "Planet Money." At 10:30, WBAA will present "How I Built This." The programs will run every Saturday on the WBAA News frequencies, 105.9 FM and AM 920.

"Planet Money" explains the economy with playful storytelling and Peabody Award-winning journalism. The team includes Robert Smith, Jacob Goldstein, Stacey Vanek Smith, Noel King, Ailsa Chang and Kenny Malone.

"How I Built This" is hosted by Guy Raz. On the show, Raz interviews innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists to explore the often-challenging journeys they took to build their now iconic companies. Featured guests include the founders of Lyft, Patagonia, Zappos, Spanx, Samuel Adams, Instagram and more.

“We are proud to bring two new NPR programs with a familiar feel to our listeners,” says Greg Kostraba, WBAA Content Director. “The pairing of 'Planet Money' and 'How I Built This,' which feature great storytelling and focus on the economy and business, fit perfectly for a Saturday morning.”

"Car Talk" remains on the WBAA schedule at 1 p.m. Sundays.
