Cumulus Media's Westwood One is celebrating the 35th anniversary of its weekday news magazine, "America in the Morning," which launched September 17, 1984. The program offers up-to-the-minute news reporting from around the country and across the globe, with the latest overnight developments in breaking news, politics, entertainment, business and weather, all delivered first thing in the morning. It currently airs on 332 affiliates, adding six markets in the last two months, including Oklahoma City and Norfolk. It's also heard on the American Forces Radio Network.

"America in the Morning" is hosted by John Trout, who took the reins from Jim Bohannon in 2016. Bohannon still contributes interviews and features to the program. The show began out of what was originally the last half hour of the overnight five-and-a-half hour "Larry King Show." When King was cut back to five hours, Westwood One utilized the last half hour to launch a morning news magazine. The show was later expanded to one hour.

"Our 332 affiliates know that America in the Morning is the show to turn to for the best and most comprehensive coverage of breaking news overnight," said Westwood One EVP/News and Talk Bart Tessler. "Jim Bohannon created a legacy and John Trout continues the tradition of ensuring Americans are informed and entertained at daybreak."
