Weekend is produced by Nathan each Friday and includes stories almost exclusively from KUT’s local team of reporters. No national news. You know where to find that. Occasionally, KUT Weekend includes a taste of what’s happening around Texas. But the idea is to focus on our immediate surrounding area, catch you up on what happened this week and highlight some of the quality public radio reporting out of the KUT newsroom!
