Ailsa Chang will host NPR’s “All Things Considered” along with Audie Cornish, Mary Louise Kelly and Ari Shapiro. Noel King will join David Greene, Steve Inskeep and Rachel Martin as the fourth host of Morning Edition and the “Up First” podcast. Most recently, Chang was a correspondent for NPR’s “Planet Money” podcast. She landed in public radio after practicing law for a few years.
“Audiences already know and love Noel and Ailsa from NPR’s Peabody award-winning podcast “Planet Money.” Now they will hear them daily hosting our morning and evening drive news magazines,” said Chris Turpin, acting Senior Vice President for News. “They will join seasoned teams that have mastered deep-dive, sound-rich, enterprise journalism alongside live and on-location reporting. The expanded host lineup will strengthen both shows by allowing them to take on more ambitious projects both in the U.S and overseas.”
