Many high-quality news and information radio programs offer full transcripts of their programs.  For example, if you're listening to Sacred Heart University's public radio station, WSHU, you can link to the website for a particular program from their programs & schedules page.  You access the nationally syndicated programs directly, as well, via the program producers:

Transcripts for many popular programs are available through library databases which provide specialized searching and management tools, particularly: General OneFileAcademicOneFile (available on campus), and ABI/Inform Dateline.  Among the programs included in these databases are:

  • All Things Considered (NPR)
  • Weekend All Things Considered (NPR)
  • Morning Edition (NPR)
  • Weekend Edition Saturday (NPR)
  • Weekend Edition Sunday (NPR)
  • Wall Street Journal podcasts
  • MSNBC podcasts
  • CNN podcasts
  • Bloomberg / Businessweek

Ask your reference librarian to help you link to these and locate the program you're interested in.  If you'll be citing a podcast or radio broadcast, there are specific rules for scholarly papers -- check with your APA or MLA style manual.
