Morning Blend with Dwight, Lester & Alesha is the weekday morning news and talk radio show on Guardian Radio 96.9. Unlike anything currently on Bahamian morning radio, the show aims to give analysis and opinion on a wide range of topics, including local and international news, politics, sports, health and entertainment.
With its panel format, the show aims for more humorous and less formal and somber perspectives on the issues of the day. However, backed by the resources of The Nassau Guardian, it will still offer in-depth reporting and analysis, and breaking news.
Listeners can expect a fast-paced show with a variety of different topics each day, as well as interviews with newsmakers, and with the people who report on the news.
Morning Blend will be a source of business and consumer news, weather and traffic updates. Regular segments include “The Overnight” (late-breaking headlines on developments nationally and internationally), “In The News” (discussions on hot topics), “Morning Business Report” (local and international business and consumer information), and “The Final Half” (entertainment news and issues at 8:30am –the final half-hour of the show).
Morning Blend airs Monday through Friday from 6am to 9am.
