Starting this Saturday, KRCU will air three new education specials for fall 2020 from American Public Media's award-winning documentary team, APM Reports. Here's a rundown of each episode, and when you can hear them:

Covid On Campus

The Coronavirus pandemic represents the greatest challenge to American higher education in decades. Some small regional colleges that were already struggling won’t survive. Other schools, large and small, are rethinking how to offer an education while keeping people safe. This program explores how institutions are handling the crisis, and how students are trying to navigate a major disruption in their college years.

Airtime / Saturday, Aug. 29 from 3-4 PM

As a result of the discontinuation of the public radio variety show Live From Here, KRCU Public Radio has added two new programs to our weekend lineup. 

NPR’s Mountain Stage will air from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday evenings, replacing the Saturday broadcast of Live From Here. Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge will air Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon, replacing the variety show’s rebroadcast.
