In the Moment is SDPB’s daily news and culture magazine program. We have a deeply rooted sense of place, and that place is South Dakota. In the Moment features authentic conversations with news makers, scholars, artists, and everyday South Dakotans. We bring you world-class radio storytelling featuring the highest journalistic integrity. We tell true stories of our state and true stories of people who are doing something or creating something for a reason. We tell these stories with intelligence, fairness, compassion and imagination. We bring our listeners into the conversations and keep them In the Moment.
