It's Been a Minute

This Saturday at Noon WAER will debut a new weekly show from NPR, It's Been A Minute with Sam Sanders.  Sanders joined NPR in 2009 as a Kroc Fellow, and since then has worn many hats within the organization, including field producer and breaking news reporter. He's spent time at three Member stations as well: WUNC in North Carolina, Oregon Public Broadcasting, and WBUR in Boston, as an intern for On Point with Tom Ashbrook.

In anticipation of his show coming to WAER, Kevin Kloss had a chance to chat with Sam and talk about what he hopes to accomplish.

On NPR's new weekly one-hour program It's Been a Minute, host Sam Sanders talks with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, and the Internet. Think of it as an irreverent, casual space for listeners who don't know how to process the pace of current events, but can't think about anything else.
