The Diane Rehm Show

Weekday Mornings from 9-11

In 1979, Diane Rehm took over as host of WAMU’s midday program, Kaleidoscope, and in 1984, the name was changed to The Diane Rehm Show. In all the ensuing years, Diane has offered listeners thoughtful and lively conversations on an array of topics with many of the most distinguished people of our times. Each week, more than 2.4 million listeners across the country tune in to the program, which has grown from a small local morning call-in show on Washington’s WAMU 88.5 to one of public broadcasting’s most listened-to programs. Each hour includes dialogue with listeners who call, e-mail, tweet or post to Facebook to join Diane’s virtual community and take part in a civil exchange of ideas.
