New Hosts for NPR’s All Things Considered

Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

NPR has revealed a new set of hosts to debut in September 2015 on its evening news program, All Things Considered. International correspondents Ari Shaprio and Kelly McEvers will be seen on the weekday edition. Shapiro was most recently an NPR correspondent in London, while McEvers has overseen the Beirut bureau. McEvers will host for ATC from NPR West. In addition, Carline Watson will now serve as the show’s executive producer. She was previously the executive producer for NPR’s now-defunct Tell Me More program, and currently serves as executive producer for the Identity & Culture Unit. These weekday changes follow the recent role change for Melissa Block, now a special correspondent for NPR.

With regard to the show’s weekend edition, Michel Martin will now serve as host for the program. She was previously the host for Tell Me More, a program she helped launch in 2006. Martin replaces Arun Rath, who is returning to NPR Boston in an unspecified role. Stepping in as executive producer for the weekend show is Kenya Young, who was most recently an editor for the Morning Edition. Follow NPR’s All Things Considered on Twitter for the network’s in-depth news features, both for weekdays and weekends.
