Please join The Trusteeship at NPR West in Culver City in Studio A for dinner and talk with NPR’s own, Kelly McEvers. Kelly is co-host of All Things Considered, NPR’s award-winning afternoon newsmagazine. All Things Considered debuted in 1971 and is the most listened-to, afternoon drive-time, news program in the country. It can be heard on your local NPR station or npr.org. In the LA area that’s KCRW (89.9 FM) and KPCC (89.3 FM) beginning at 4 pm every week day. Kelly hosts the program from NPR West with co-hosts Robert Siegel, Audie Cornish, and Ari Shapiro in NPR’s Washington, D.C. headquarters.

McEvers was previously a national correspondent based at NPR West. Prior to that, McEvers ran NPR’s Beirut bureau, where she earned a George Foster Peabody award, an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia award, a Gracie award, and an Overseas Press Club mention for her 2012 coverage of the Syrian conflict. She recently made a radio documentary about being a war correspondent with renowned radio producer Jay Allison.

A special thanks to Trusteeship member, Miriam Muscarolas, a member of the Board of Trustees, NPR Foundation, for her assistance in arranging this special evening.

“The Trusteeship has introduced me to great role models, lent encouragement when needed, and challenges us to be better. The unique experiences, conversations, and shared stories keep The Trusteeship an integral part of my life.”
