The New York Times, American Public Media to Launch The Daily April 2 on 16 Stations

Saint Paul, Minn. and New York, March 27, 2018 – The new radio edition of the popular podcast The Daily will be available to public radio listeners across the country beginning April 2. The New York Times and American Public Media announced earlier this year that they will be joining forces in this collaboration, which will extend the audio news report’s following of 4.5 million monthly unique listeners to the radio audience.

The Daily draws on the unrivaled quality and expertise of The New York Times’s global footprint of more than 1,450 journalists. The Daily podcast has found massive success, becoming the most-downloaded new show in 2017 on Apple Podcasts and winning the DuPont-Columbia University Award for audio excellence. The radio edition will give public radio listeners a deep analysis of one or two of the day’s top news stories.

The radio edition of the popular podcast will be hosted by celebrated journalist Michael Barbaro. Barbaro’s resume includes a tenure as a national political correspondent at The New York Times, and he also has served as host of The Run-up, a political podcast that chronicled the 2016 election. Prior to that, he covered New York’s City Hall and the U.S. retail industry.

The Daily will air after 4 p.m. ET, and listeners can find their area’s specific air time by visiting their local station online. To date, 16 public radio stations across the country have committed to bringing The Daily to their audiences. Though the list continues to grow, stations that will carry The Daily beginning April 2 include:
