Want To Listen To Sotomayor Hearings On The Radio? Don’t Turn That Dial To NPR

Have you noticed that NPR is not broadcasting the Judge Sonia Sotomayor confirmation hearings live?

NPR ombudsman Alicia Shepard explains that the live broadcast was offered to NPR’s 800-lus member stations, but there wasn’t enough interest to warrant live coverage, according to NPR’s senior vice president for news Ellen Weiss. Actually less than a dozen wanted to run the hearings.

NPR’s website does have a live video stream of the hearings on its homepage, which is in collaboration with PBS’ The NewsHour and anchored by Judy Woodruff.
