News from the Mobile Radio Examiner for Saturday, July 12th, 2014 (amended)

According to Alabama Public Radio, the reason the national weekly radio program "Science Friday" was not part of their network programming this Friday, July 11th, was due to their decision to have it removed from their regular programming plans by then (it was replaced by the national radio program "Performance Today" since they usually had it in the same time period as "Science Friday" from Monday through Thursday) due to the price to broadcast it being higher than it was when it was provided to them by National Public Radio (NPR) until this past January, when Public Radio International (PRI) started providing it.

Folks in the broadcast areas of Alabama Public Radio's network stations (including WHIL-FM in Mobile) may still access live broadcasts of "Science Friday" in spite of Alabama Public Radio's decision by visiting the official World Wide Web site for "Science Friday" on Fridays between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. (specifically its front page). In case they miss a broadcast, they may access recordings of its segments through the same site (through its "Listen" section).

(amendment note: the information about "Performance Today" was added to the article)
