America in The Morning is a news program airing on numerous talk radio stations, syndicated by Westwood One, a subsidiary of Cumulus Media. The one-hour live program airs weekdays at 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time and is hosted by John Trout. The show features reports from Westwood One News and CNN, as well as a national forecast from AccuWeather, a look ahead to the day on Wall Street and the short-form feature Offbeat.[1] The program originally debuted on the Mutual Broadcasting System in 1984 with Jim Bohannon as host until December 2015, when Trout took over the hosting chores after Bohannon decided to cut back his schedule, concentrating on his nightly Westwood One talk show.[2]

A weekend version, America This Week, another former Mutual news program, is available from Westwood One.[3] An alternate one-hour Westwood One news program known as First Light, hosted by news anchor Evan Haning, also airs at 5 a.m. Eastern Time.[4]
