Jean Cochran helped wake America by delivering the news during Morning Edition for most of her 33 years at NPR
An NPR newscaster who helped wake America for 33 years joins us on our next program. Jean Cochran retired from National Public Radio last year as part of a buy-out offered to many long-time employees at the network.
"The trouble is not in your set." Difficulties that kept NPR's Morning Edition off the air for most of the hour between 6:00 and 7:00 am Monday originated at NPR in Washington. By way of background, NPR's ENTIRE operation has been moved into new facilities during recent weeks. WEKU apologizes for the inconvenience and disruption. We are in communication with NPR's technicians and management to discover what happened and we are confident that they are doing whatever they can to avoid future incidents of this type.
Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
