7. Nightside’s latest specialty correspondent is Caitlin, the 1-year-old sippy-cup guru.

6. Instead of rerunning earlier material from 10 p.m. to midnight, staffers will read Harry Potter excerpts and give gaming cheats for two hours.

5. New features like “Xtreme Mortgage Smackdown” and “Fall Out Boy’s I.R.A. 411” appeal to younger and older listeners.

4. Friday-night shows will be broadcast strictly via text message, no audio.
