New BBC Topline Clock Adapts & Expands with Morning Edition

Stations trust Topline to complement NPR’s Morning Edition® clock and content each weekday, with 90-second snapshots of top global news stories – and beginning Monday, August 13, BBC will offer a new-and-improved Topline clock and an additional sixth feed!

Highlights include:

  • Extended air window
  • Three placement opportunities during Morning Edition, for greater flexibility
  • New, sixth feed at 11:30 ET, based on station demand
  • Updated files as news develops

 Hosted by Rob Hugh-Jones, Pooneh Ghoddoosi, and Rich Preston, each unique feed of Topline provides a 90-second snapshot of the world’s most important unfolding stories, curated exclusively for U.S. audiences. All six global news updates complement your morning schedule and the Morning Edition® clock.

Best of all, Topline is available at no charge with your BBC World Service affiliation. Contact your Station Representative.

New Topline Feed Starts Monday, 10/2

Based on popular demand, BBC World Service will add a new, fifth feed of Topline at 6:30 a.m. ET next Monday.

Starting October 2, the five distinct, hourly feeds – from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ET – present 90-seconds of leading global news stories, with context, analysis and audio to complement Morning Edition, and fill the break from 0:30 to 0:45.

Topline is curated specifically – and exclusively – for U.S. audiences, and included in your BBC World Service affiliation. Learn more.
