Morning Edition

Weekdays: 5-10 AM

**Beginning Monday, August 13, Morning Edition will change its clock, meaning there will now be national and local newscasts at the top and bottom of the hour, allowing for slightly longer segments so you get more of the news, insights, and analysis you expect from NPR and WVXU. So adjust your morning routine ever so slightly starting August 13, and thanks for listening!**

For more than two decades, NPR's Morning Edition has prepared listeners for the day ahead with two hours of up-to-the-minute news, background analysis, commentary, and coverage of arts and sports. With nearly 13 million listeners, Morning Edition draws public radio's largest audience.

One of the most respected news magazines in the world, Morning Edition airs Monday through Friday on more than 600 NPR stations across the United States, and around the globe on NPR's international services.

Well, there are many reasons, but here's a big one that you probably haven't heard about - your personal electronic health record and the fact that your health care provider doesn't want to share it with other providers, including possibly your current doctor. Dr. Bob Kocher is a partner at the venture capital firm Venrock, and he was a member of California Governor Gavin Newsom's testing task force.
