NPR West – With Kelly McEvers – Behind The Scenes Access
The special news opportunity for The Trusteeship began at NPR West in Culver City in Studio A where Kelly McEvers, co-host of All Things Considered, NPR’s award-winning afternoon newsmagazine, showed us around the studio and allowed us to watch her live and on-air during an All Things Considered segment.
A bit of background on All Things Considered which 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.
This fun was followed by a lovely dinner and talk with Kelly who shared her occupational history with the group. Kelly 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. Learning more about NPR and Kelly’s life was an amazing evening.
