Coming to KPCC weekends are two shows in the 10 a.m. hour that complement the news you've just heard on NPR's Weekend Edition: At 10 a.m. Saturday, it's The New Yorker Radio Hour with host David Remnick and The New Yorker magazine's smartest writers and their takes on the week's news.

At 10 a.m. Sunday, it's On the Media with Brooke Gladstone and Bob Garfield, with candid, often searing analysis on how the media behaved during the week.

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me will still give you your weekly news catharsis at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. At noon Saturday, taking the place of Off-Ramp, it's FilmWeek with Larry Mantle and his critics, reviewing the week's new crop of movies. At noon Sunday, it's Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

At 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, new to the schedule, KPCC welcomes the BBC Newshour, then, at 2 p.m., the live broadcast of NPR's Weekend All Things Considered with Michel Martin, who stays connected with her listeners throughout the show on social media.
