The popular news show will see Mary Louise Kelly succeed Robert Siegel as co-host starting January 17. She will partner up with Audie Cornish and Ari Shapiro. Kelly replaces Kelly McEvers, who has been co-host of both All Things Considered and the Embedded podcast. McEvers will continue her work as host and executive producer of Embedded, which will increase its output in 2018.
“Mary Louise Kelly is an immensely talented reporter and her deep command of the issues make her a formidable interviewer. After a lengthy search, we found precisely what we were looking for close to home. We are thrilled to have her on air every afternoon,” said Chris Turpin, acting Senior Vice President of News. “Mary Louise combines rigorous thinking with the ability to put herself in the listeners’ shoes. She will help us usher in a new era of the program.”
