Texas Standard

Weekdays at Noon

Texas Standard is a new statewide public radio news program that originates from The KUT Public Media Studios in Austin and is hosted by David Brown .

The one-hour program includes national and Texas news‐of‐the day segments along with regular feature segments on Business & the Economy, Technology & Innovation, Environment, Arts, Culture and Social Media.

Texas drives much of the national conversation in many sectors: Business, Energy, Education, Technology, Environment, Medicine, Sports and, of course, Politics and Texas Standard is here to help it make sense to us all.
