Tomorrow is the last day for NPR’s Talk of the Nation. NPR is dropping the show and getting out of the midday talk business.
So Highlights, the kids’ magazine, dedicated a special edition of its classic game to spot the differences in two drawings. Host Neal Conan had told a Highlights staffer last year that he always had a hard time with the task.
The first time Highlights was a subject on Talk of the Nation was back in 1996, when Ray Suarez hosted the show. Back then, it was one topic per hour, and to listen to a program archive, you needed RealPlayer. It’s a reminder that the media and technological world changes fast, making Highlights’ longevity all the more impressive.
