WNYC Studios Introduces “Brian Lehrer: A Daily Politics Podcast”
Essential interviews with newsmakers and reporters with one of the nation’s most trusted broadcast journalists
(New York, NY — February 12, 2020) — Today, WNYC Studios is introducing “Brian Lehrer: A Daily Politics Podcast,” hosted by Brian Lehrer, one of the nation’s most trusted public affairs and radio journalists.
The podcast is a follow up to the success of Lehrer’s “Impeachment: A Daily Podcast,” which was among the first podcasts to pop up in the early days of the impeachment process to help listeners keep pace with one of the most significant and consequential stories of our time.
“Brian Lehrer: A Daily Politics Podcast” expands the scope of the impeachment podcast to cover national politics more broadly. Through thoughtful conversations with leading journalists and key newsmakers, the podcast offers crucial context to the day’s news and provides a clear-eyed assessment of the stakes at hand.
Brian Lehrer is one of the country’s most respected journalists, and the host of New York City’s most influential news and politics talk show: the Peabody Award-winning program The Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC. From his weekly interviews with New York City’s mayor Bill de Blasio to his daily conversations with newsmakers, changemakers, journalists, elected officials, and callers from around the City and across the globe, Lehrer is renowned for offering listeners his signature blend of news and information, community and empathy, conversation and access.
“Brian Lehrer is based in New York, but the appetite for his kind of deeply engaging but non-sensationalistic approach to politics during this fractious moment exists all across the country,” said Andrew Golis, Chief Content Officer, WNYC. “Brian’s impeachment podcast introduced him to many new listeners looking for sane and reasoned conversation about the relentless volume of news and politics, and we’re excited to continue to serve this audience with an ongoing podcast. As this historic election season heats up, Brian is the voice we all need right now.”
The show is available online here and all other platforms where podcasts are available.
