Morning Edition

Weekdays 4 to 9 a.m.

NPR’s morning newsmagazine prepares listeners for the day ahead with up-to-the-minute news presented in context, thoughtful ideas and commentary, and reviews of important new music, books, and events in the arts.

Morning Edition draws on reporting from correspondents based in 14 countries around the world, and producers and reporters in 19 locations in the U.S. Their reporting is supplemented by NPR member station reporters across the country and a strong corps of independent producers and reporters in the public radio system. 

 A bi-coastal, 24-hour news operation, Morning Edition is hosted by NPR's Steve Inskeep and David Greene in Washington, D.C., Renee Montagne at NPR West in Culver City, CA, and Bob Lenox at KEDM in Monroe.

Australia has a controversial policy of intercepting refugees and migrants at sea and sending them to detention centers, paid for by Australia, in remote island nations. One of those centers is on Nauru, a tiny speck in the Pacific Ocean with just 10,000 citizens.

The refugees and migrants come from many troubled countries, including Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, and some of them, including children, have complained of abuse at the Australian camp on Nauru.
