This Morning: America's First News (formerly The Wall Street Journal This Morning) is a two-hour radio news/talk program hosted by Gordon Deal and Jennifer Kushinka, who replaced long-serving co-host Gina Cervetti on January 2, 2015. [1] In addition to national and world headlines, the program covers a broad range of topics such as business, finance, lifestyle, careers, technology, and more. This Morning is broadcast on over 250 radio stations across the United States, often throughout early-morning drive time, and is also repackaged into a podcast.[2] Deal began hosting the program in November 2005. Until January 2015, the program was produced by the Wall Street Journal Radio Network, which the Wall Street Journal shut down on December 31, 2014 due to corporate cutbacks.

In advance of the shutdown, the program was acquired by Compass Media Networks, who took over syndication and production. (Gina Cervetti, along with several other Wall Street Journal Radio staffers, were hired by Bloomberg Radio).[3][4] The first broadcast under the new title was January 2, 2015; the show on January 1, 2015 carried the old title and hosts despite The Wall Street Journal Radio Network no longer existing and the show being distributed by Compass Media Networks on this day.
