Customer Reviews

Every. Single. Morning.

First thing I turn on when I wake up. Listen through the NPROne app.

Perfect bite-sized information

Perfect length to start off the morning with an informed outlook. I like that they show a bit of the hosts' personalities too.

Mara Liasson has no place on NPR

Mara Liasson consistently interjects her personal interpretations and biases into her reporting which is utterly inappropriate but also inconsistent with the fact based impartial reporting I expect from NPR. She should stick with her primary stint at Fox where lies and misinformation are acceptable and rewarded.
