I keep waiting for this show to get better, but what it has done is it has gotten me to stop listening to WNYC. There is hole in my listening schedule and I never seem to go back to the station.
I find I am am not interested in the guests the way I was when Lopate held this spot. Surely the station can find someone who is more suited to this task. I understand you won’t bring back Lopate but please find some who can fill his shoes properly.
Below is my original review about how wonderful the show once was:
I am smarter, more informed, moved, and dare I say enlightened at times by listening to The Leonard Lopate Show. Every week I am amazed and thrilled by the variety of guests.
I’ve listen to this show for years while drawing in my studio each and every day. I’ve been exposed to books, plays, films, artists, comedians, graphic novels, world affairs, and the plights of other people at home and abroad. I can’t a single show, in all of media, that is so informative on such a wide variety of subjects. Bravo!
