  1. I’ve been tuned in since 11 a.m. but the BATs, UOO, and SOS segments don’t seem to be on.


  2. So sorry to report that there was a major technical difficulty, the kind that happens once or twice a year and, sadly, just fell in the BUS hour. The BUS program scheduled for today, 10/23, will air on 11/20. Thanks for your patience and understanding.


  3. I couldn’t catch them either…
