The new 2009 line-up of Radio 24
Milan, 17th January 2009 - The new morning schedule of Radio 24 hits the airwaves on Monday, January 19. Current affairs, politics, the economy and news stories uncovered through the opinions and analysis by great names such as Giuliano Ferrara and Ferruccio de Bortoli, plus the heavyweights of Italian journalism.
These are the ingredients that will spice up Radio 24’s morning line-up, with fast-paced news, insight and discussions with distinguished guests and with the listeners.
The first new feature is the 30-minute newscast at 7.00, bringing the news on politics, the economy, news stories and sport. The new “24 Mattino” debuts from 7.30 to 9.00, 90 minutes packed with current affairs plus several inserts. Kicking off at 7.30 is “In primo piano. La rassegna stampa di Radio 24”, each week hosting a different director, expert and news analyst chosen from among influential names in Italian journalism. The first hitting the airwaves is Stefano Folli, political editor of Sole 24 ORE, followed during the first month by ANSA director Giampiero Gramaglia and Radiocor director Fabio Tamburini.
“24 Mattino” continues at 8.15 with “Soldi e Dintorni”, fronted by Debora Rosciani commenting on economic news, followed at 8.35 by “L’Asterisco”, with Ferruccio De Bortoli’s perspective on the top story of the day.
At 9.00, Giuliano Ferrara, with his quick-witted signature comments, storms in to present “Parliamo con l’Elefante”: Monday to Friday from 9 to 10, an opinion programme where the host, his guests and listeners share their views on the news and issues of the day.
There are two new afternoon programmes: at 15.00, a new cycle of “I Magnifici”, on the lives of Italian and foreign musical artists uncovered through original material, film excerpts, interviews with the artists themselves, readings of their autobiographies and samples of their music.
At 16.00, Jefferson Ming metamorphoses into “Jefferson 2. L’arte della svolta”: after his daily coverage of the changes occurring in Olympic China and in Voting America, Stefano Pistolini sheds light every day on the new United States of Barack Obama and on world balances.
Radio 24 will continue to air its traditional favourites: Gianluca Nicoletti and his “Melog 2.0” at 10.00, “Essere e Benessere” hosted by Nicoletta Carbone at 11.00, “Salvadanaio” by Debora Rosciani at 12, “Focus Economia” by Sebastiano Barisoni at 17.00, “La Zanzara” by Giuseppe Cruciani at 18.30.
The open programme schedule of Radio 24 will also bring breaking news, live broadcasts, special programmes and Radioday, giving the audience the chance to stay tuned to current affairs as they happen.
