First Light (radio)

First Light is a syndicated talk radio program hosted by Dirk Van. The one-hour live program airs weekdays at 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time and is one of a small number of programs airing live (and taking listener phone calls) in that time slot. A weekend version, The Week in Review, also is available, in conjunction with Jim Bohannon's America This Week.
Until October 26, 2011, First Light was also the last program that continued to use the original NBC Radio branding, via a short announcement at the end of the program and through the program's online and print logo (which included a "sunset orange" variant of the NBC peacock). It is distributed through Dial Global, which owns the remains of the NBC radio network through its purchase of Westwood One. Upon the announcement of Dial Global's expansion of NBC News Radio to a full-time operation, the "NBC" branding has been revived at front of all commercial break announcements.
