Minnesota Public Radio News is launching a new national show this fall: “Flyover.”
Starting September 10, the weekly, live, call-in show, hosted by Kerri Miller, will focus on “the big issues of modern American identity.” Miller will bring in perspectives from America’s heartland, inviting journalists from radio stations to discuss social, political, and cultural topics within their regions, while also taking calls and social media comments from listeners from across the country.
This new, 12-week program follows the success of “Indivisible,” a national program in collaboration with New York public radio, WNYC, which covered the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
“In an increasingly divided political and social landscape, this show offers a new way for listeners to be heard, and to hear and understand the experiences of fellow Americans from the country’s heartland,” the public radio network explains.
“When ‘Indivisible’ ended, we got feedback from many listeners that they wanted to continue this national conversation and–together with our public radio colleagues across the country—we’re well positioned to carry on this dialogue,” said Nancy Cassutt, executive director news and programming of MPR News, in the press release.
The one-hour show will air live on public radio stations during its run on Sundays at 3pm CST from September 10 through November 27. Check your local public radio station’s listings for details, or stream the program at mprnews.org.
