Michael C. Hall Hearts NPR

Mar 29, 2013

For an actor whose latest television roles are all about death - a funeral director on Six Feet Under and a vigilante serial killer on Dexter - Michael C. Hall is an awfully fun partner in crime. At least when you're doing a photo shoot with him anyway.

He came by NPR West five years ago when Dexter first aired, and was interviewed on Talk of the Nation. Seven seasons later, he was here to talk with the CBC about the same show.

NPR is ending the 21-year-old call-in radio show “Talk of the Nation” and encouraging local stations to replace it with an expanded version of “Here and Now,” an afternoon newscast that is produced in Boston.

NPR announced Friday morning that it will no longer produce the Monday-to-Thursday call-in show Talk of the Nation.

It will be replaced by Here and Now, a show produced in partnership with member station WBUR in Boston. Reported stories will be part of the show's format.
