New Look for Live Online

A new home for our Live Discussions launched this week. There you can find discussions with regular hosts, such as Carolyn Hax, Gene Weingarten, Michael Wilbon and Sally Squires.

Washington Post Radio Website

We have launched a new website to support Washington Post Radio in cooperation with The Washington Post and Bonneville Radio. Washingtonpostradio.com features a programming guide, schedule highlights and bios of the anchors. And you can listen to the station on your computer by using the "listen live" link. Washington Post Radio is also the home for radio coverage of the Washington Nationals. Washingtonpostradio.com includes a full broadcast schedule of all the Nationals games. However, due to restrictions from Major League Baseball, the games will not be streamed on the internet except thru MLB.com. In the Washington area, you can listen to Nats games on 107.5 FM and 1500 AM. We plan to add audio excerpts of key programs and interviews to the website in the next few weeks. Questions about the website should be directed to wpr@washingtonpostradio.com Chet Rhodes washingtonpost.com Deputy Multimedia Editor, Breaking News...
