Morning Edition on 90.5 WKAR

Mon - Fri 5am - 9am

NPR's Morning Edition takes listeners around the country and the world with multi-faceted stories and commentaries that inform, challenge and occasionally amuse.

A bi-coastal, 24-hour news operation, Morning Edition is hosted nationally by NPR's Steve Inskeep, David Green, and Rachel Martin with WKAR's Brooke Allen in East Lansing, MI.

Morning Edition is the most listened-to news radio program in the country.

The art world looks down on paintings on velvet. The images conjured by the phrase “velvet art” might be things like children with big eyes, or Elvis Presley. A Lansing art gallery is challenging the notion that this is low-brow art. Casa de Rosado is hosting an exhibition called “Black Velvet, a Rasquache Aesthetic” through February 3rd.

Some people love the cold and some just aren’t built for it… and the same goes for the animal kingdom. WKAR’s Katie Cook stopped by Potter Park Zoo last week to see which animals are thriving in winter, and which ones want nothing to do with it.

Six senators - three Republicans, three Democrats - think they have a solution for DACA. That's the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.
