1A on 89.5-1

Weekdays 9:00 - 11:00 AM

1A is a live two-hour daily national radio program hosted by Joshua Johnson, a smart, fresh voice with intelligence, curiosity, and empathy. With a name inspired by the 1st amendment and the front page. While 1A will explore important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and the deep fissures that divide the country, the program also will delve into lighter subjects such as pop culture, sports, and humor. On air, online, and on demand, 1A launches at a time of deep national reckoning. The show will act as a national mirror – taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be. Broadcasting out of America’s capital but in touch with communities across the country, 1A takes advantage of the world’s most dynamic thinkers to examine the complex issues facing us all—with a focus on solutions.
