"The Takeaway is a one-hour daily news show that reveals unexpected insights into the day’s news, fills a need for greater context, and interacts with audiences in a way that no other public radio news program offers. “The Takeaway” convenes conversations across social divides to give listeners not just the information, but the complex, nuanced perspectives they need for understanding and participation. It features voices of Americans from all walks of life who may have different struggles and challenges but often speak to the same desires, dreams, and hopes for the future of their families and communities. It does not shy away from big and complicated stories; through exceptional sound design and production, the show breaks down complex policy and connects listeners with stories that touch their lives and their experiences.

“The Takeaway” is produced in partnership with its national audience and, as a true multiplatform show on-air, online and on social media, delivers context and analysis to help better understand the day’s news. It encourages and equips its audience to take part in the American conversation. By putting the listener experience at the heart of its mission, “The Takeaway” provides an opportunity to broaden and diversify public radio’s audience.

“The Takeaway” is led by a new generation of public radio creators, producers and reporters who contribute to the editorial direction, develop the content and form the heartbeat of the show. This team works closely with stations to tell stories that are most pressing for communities at the local level.

“The Takeaway” is a co-production of PRX and WNYC, in collaboration with WGBH Radio Boston. The program follows the standard public radio clock so there is substantial opportunity for local inserts.
