Which News Summary to Choose?

The Hourly News Summary is ideal if you:  - Set iTunes to update podcasts daily  - Occasionally click the podcast "update" button just before syncing your iPod Used this way, this podcast neatly delivers a useful 5-minute round-up of the news at least once a day (and the very latest when you want it) while taking up only a single line in the iPod's Podcasts menu. For listeners who set iTunes to update podcasts hourly, it's better to choose your favorites from the among the News Summary podcasts at set hours of the day, 7 am, 10 am, 4 pm, and 7 pm.

since 02/11/2010 the podcast has not been updated

I depend regularly on NPR hourly news through out the day. But since 02/11/2010 the podcast has not been updated. Please make sure listeners like me on podcast are not disappointed in the future. Thank you.
