On NPR's new weekly one-hour program "It's Been a Minute," host Sam Sanders talks with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, and the Internet. Think of it as an irreverent, casual space for listeners who don't know how to process the pace of current events, but can't think about anything else.

At TPR, we’re always listening, to public radio shows from across the country, and to you. We’ve recently made some program changes to our lineup on certain TPR stations, and a few more program additions are coming. The new shows are all part of our station-wide goal to serve our community better, and we always appreciate feedback at letters@tpr.org.

Below is a rundown of some of the already-in-progress and soon-to-come program changes.

Former Texas Public Radio board member John McLaughlin passed away on August 31, following heart surgery. He was 70 years old. Born in Philadelphia, John graduated from St. Joseph's University and served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. His career included two decades each with the airline industry and in the financial industry. Many of us at TPR knew him through his work on the TPR Board of Directors from 2005-2008.

From TPR's President and CEO, Joyce Slocum:
