San Francisco’s KQED is adding weekday newscasts to its FM station and as on-demand audio on its website, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “These will be the first local news-only reports on KQED-FM in several years and will air on the half hour from 6:04 a.m. to noon and at 4:33 p.m. The two minutes of air time will be subtracted from the NPR newscasts that precede them,” the Chronicle reports. The expanded news service launched this morning; a blog reporting breaking news, News Fix, rolls out next month.
