NPR’s Science Friday from SLCC’s Grand Theatre to run one Week Later


National Broadcast Delayed by Boston Marathon Bombing Coverage

NPR’s Science Friday program, recorded at Salt Lake Community College’s The Grand Theatre, will be broadcast on Friday, April 26, 2013 at noon Mountain time. Presented by KUER public radio, the broadcast will be heard by more than 1.3 million listeners via hundreds of public radio stations across the United States.


The program was originally recorded on April 19. Science Friday typically is a live-broadcast, but was rescheduled for April 26 because of NPR's coverage of the boston bombing.

The broadcast can be heard on local National Public Radio stations, on NPR.org and the Science Friday website at: www.sciencefriday.com.

Science Friday is a weekly installment of NPR’s ‘Talk of the Nation’ program that focuses on science topics in the news. The April 26 broadcast includes a discussion of paleontology, the planet Mars, salt sea microbes, a space telescope, and the sage grouse, followed by a Q&A session with listeners.

Veteran Science journalist Ira Flatow has been the program's host since its inception in 1991. Flatow has shared his enthusiasm for science with audiences for more than 35 years, including stints as an NPR science reporter, host and writer of the Emmy Award-winning public television show Newton's Apple, and as a reporter for CBS and CNBC.
