The Hosts of Here & Now talk about how they get into radio.

Here! Now! In the moment! Paddling in the middle of a fast moving stream of news and information. Here & Now is Public Radio’s daily news magazine, bringing you the news that breaks after “Morning Edition” and before “All Things Considered.”

We are proud that the finest reporters in the world contribute to our show. We can call on David Leonhardt of the New York Times to explain the latest from Wall Street, Gail Chaddock of the Christian Science Monitor to speak to us from the halls of Congress, or Borzou Daragahi of the Los Angeles Times or John Burns from the New York Times to give a clear-eyed view from whatever war-torn city they are in.
