The Daily turns into a radio show on Monday. Today we learnt which stations will take the show; the program is presented, like the podcast, by Michael Barbaro. Stations in Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco are among the initial sixteen to take it, and it'll air after 4pm; it won't air in New York City for now. (By comparison, All Things Considered debuted on 90 stations and is now carried on around 800; APM programs are broadcast on over a thousand stations).
