It has been an especially frenetic time here at WBUR.
Frantic calls to book flights, rooms, and rides, jiggering and re-jiggering of program schedules, and a manic homepage makeover as the station prepares for Barack Obama’s accession to the office of President of the United States.
Here is an overview of what we have planned for online and over the airwaves:
The new, albeit temporary, wbur.org has a prominent chunk of real estate reserved for Twitter. Nice eh? Please give me plenty of material I can “retweet,” especially if you are one of the Twitterati who made it down to DC.
National Public Radio’s special inaugural coverage will pre-empt 90.9’s regular 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. weekday schedule. Coverage will include a live national call-in program to air 2 – 4 p.m.
But it is business as usual for the 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. slot. You probably have an inkling as to what On Point will cover. And listen up: You are all invited to join Tom Ashbrook in a Boston.com chatroom at 11 a.m (but I’d plan on arriving early in order to reserve a good seat). And at 7 p.m. On Point returns with a recap and analysis of the events at the nation’s capital.
Incidentally, the swearing-in is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. You will find a full schedule of inaugural events here.
