(Rochester, NY) – Every day, 1A convenes a conversation about the most important issues of our time. The show takes a deep and unflinching look at America, bringing context and insight to stories unfolding across the country and the world. 1A airs weekdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on AM 1370.

With a name inspired by the First Amendment, 1A explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports and humor. 1A’s goal is to act as a national mirror — taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be.

In response to COVID-19, 1A will be featuring 'Acts of Kindness' at the end of the first hour (11AM). It's easy to get lost in the bad news. That why they want to spotlight the bright moments. Every day, thousands of acts of kindness are being committed across the country. The producers of 1A ask you to share what good deeds you’ve witnessed in your community.
