NPR signal difficulties this afternoon

We’re experiencing signal difficulties this afternoon in our live feed of All Things Considered (ATC) from National Public Radio (NPR). Upon investigation, it appears to be a problem originating from the NPR signal generated in Washington, DC. The audio simply drops out intermittently — a very frustrating sort of problem. We’re working with NPR to restore normal service.

In the mean time, three bits of good news:

  1. NPR programming ends at 6:00 p.m. local time and won’t resume until the wee hours of the morning; once we’re based on locally-originated material, the annoying drop-outs will end.
  2. We expect the NPR signal difficulties to be resolved before Morning Edition kicks off early Tuesday.
  3. You can listen to All Things Considered — in its entirety or story-by-story — here.

So we’re still on the air — except for the ATC issues this evening. We deeply apologize for the difficulty.
