In January 2020, WMUK eliminated classical music programming from its daytime schedule and became a full news/talk station during the day, with jazz continuing overnights. In addition to the already-running news programs Morning Edition, All Things Considered, As It Happens and Marketplace, WMUK added On Point, The Takeaway, 1A, Fresh Air and The Daily to its weekday schedule. Classical music programming moved to WMUK-HD2 and WKDS.[1]
