HR2 The Day Podcast,
The first episode of the series was broadcast on June 3, 1996, in hr1, the information radio of the Hessischer Rundfunk at that time. The moderator was Ulrich Manz, who also helped develop the program. It was created jointly by the political and cultural editors.
As a result of a fundamental change in the program sequence in hr1 planned for 2004, The Day between 28 June and 16 July 2004 was broadcast live for the listeners in both hr1 and hr2 and from 19 July 2004 only in hr2. The fear of discontinuing the series in spring 2004 had led to a nationwide signature campaign under the motto “Save your radio”.
