News & Notes was a National Public Radio program focusing on issues affecting people of color. The program aired for one hour each weekday and was hosted by Farai Chideya until January 16, 2009, and then by Tony Cox until its final broadcast in March 20, 2009. The program was produced at the NPR West studios in Culver City, California. It was originally hosted by former Black Entertainment Television host Ed Gordon.

The program succeeded The Tavis Smiley Show.

Highlights of the show included the News & Notes Roundtable, where notable black journalists, bloggers, business leaders, politicians, activists and personalities debated the issues of the day.

On December 10, 2008 NPR announced that the show would be canceled due to budget constraints. It signed off on March 20, 2009.[1]
