What was your favorite Audie Cornish moment on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday? It’s over. At least for now.
Just five months after Cornish took over the program from long-time host Liane Hansen, NPR is tapping Cornish as the new host of the daily All Things Considered program, according to the Two Way blog.
She takes over, at least until next November, from Minnesota native Michele Norris, who is leaving the host position because her husband is taking a job with the Obama re-election campaign.
Norris will continue in a reporting role, but won’t do any political stories, according to NPR.
