Join WITF 89.5 & 93.3. for 1A weekdays 10:00am until noon beginning Monday January 2.  Hosted by Joshua Johnson, 1A aspires to be the most important daily conversation about the issues of our time. The show will take a deep and unflinching look at America, bringing context and insight to stories unfolding across the country and the world. 

1A will explore important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and the deep fissures that divide the country. The program also will delve into lighter subjects such as pop culture, sports, and humor. Expect a mix of several segments in each hour, staying close to the news of the day. Audience involvement will shape every program, using a range of social media and calls to encourage dialog.

The show will act as a national mirror - taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be. Broadcasting out of America's capital but in touch with communities across the country, 1A takes advantage of the world's most dynamic thinkers to examine the complex issues facing us all--with a focus on solutions.

You can contact the show at 1a@wamu.org, and join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter at @1A

This program replaces The Diane Rehm Show. Diane Rehm retires at the end of 2016.  1A airs on WITF beginning January 2 and can be heard Monday through Friday 10:00am until noon.
