Joining the NPR Team

Dec 1, 2011

You could say I might be a bit overeager about getting started. That would explain my 4:45am arrival – with extra coffee – at 635 Massachusetts Avenue this morning to sit in on the first feed of Morning Edition. For millions of listeners, morning sounds like Steve and Renee, and it was invigorating to actually watch this team put on a live broadcast that connects millions of Americans to a whole world of events, ideas, places and cultures – and to each other.
