Our host offers a simple take on what we’ll do every day

Think of the basic tenets of journalism — who, what, when, where and why.

The “who” and “when” are the easy ones. I’ll be hosting, Tom Weber will be newscasting, reporting and interviewing. Steph Curtis will be our queen of social media.

The “when” — 9 to noon.

And the “where” — as always MPR News, on-air, online, on mobile phones and on social media channels.

The “what” and “why” are most interesting because we’re not simply adding an hour to Midmorning. You’ll hear more reporting on developing stories, more context on the issues of the day, more perspective and critical thinking on big ideas. Most important, there’ll be more ways for you to get into our discussions. I hope you’ll join us.

In fact, if you’d like to talk to me and Tom about the new show, toggle over to live.mprnews.org at 11 a.m. today and give us some ideas.
