The New York Times’s audio news report, The Daily, will soon extend its current following of 4.5 million monthly unique listeners to the national radio audience. Beginning in April 2018, American Public Media will distribute a radio edition of the popular daily podcast to public radio listeners across the country. Published every weekday and hosted by Michael Barbaro, The Daily draws on the The New York Times’s global pool of more than 1,450 journalists. The radio edition will give public radio listeners a deep analysis of one or two of the day’s top news stories and will air weekday evenings.
“It’s been such a joy to see The Daily welcomed into millions of people’s lives over the past year,” said Theo Balcomb, managing producer for The Daily. “As a team, we’ve aspired to earn that trust by offering listeners a rich understanding of the day’s biggest news. And now, we’re thrilled to introduce The Daily to a whole new audience of radio listeners.”
