The Seattle Post-Intelligencer interviews John Hockenberry about his new morning drive-time series The Takeaway, now airing on KXOT in Tacoma and KSER in Everett. The live, conversational approach of the PRI-distributed show “allows us to take advantage of the instantaneousness of information sources,” Hockenberry says, yet it comes with its own set of challenges. “The work is remaining vigilant to how quickly things are changing in a news environment . . . .There’s no such thing as a line-up in our show. We sort of understand what we’re doing 20 minutes ahead.”
