The Takeaway is a daily national news program focused on you. What you know and what you share helps to shape our daily discussion. You can hear us weekdays across America.
The Takeaway is driven by America's national conversation — if a conversation connects or you have a valuable perspective, we want you to share your experience. These contributions help us deliver fresh insights and analysis on the day’s news.
Hosts: Tanzina Vega and Amy Walter
The Takeaway , hosted by Tanzina Vega (M-Th) and Amy Walter (F), is a one-hour daily news show that reveals unexpected insights into the day’s news, fills a need for greater context, and interacts with audiences in a way that no other public radio news program offers. The Takeaway convenes conversations across social divides to give listeners not just the information, but the complex, nuanced perspectives they need for understanding and participation. It features voices of Americans from all walks of life who may have different struggles and challenges but often speak to the same desires, dreams and hopes for the future of their families and communities. It does not shy away from big and complicated stories; through exceptional sound design and production, the show breaks down complex policy and connects listeners with stories that touch their lives and their experiences.
