Siegel Ends His Run With NPR


Longtime co-host of National Public Radio’s All Things Considered Robert Siegel is leaving. Siegel worked at NPR for 41 years, hosting All Things Considered for the past 30. Siegel started working for NPR when he was fired from the job at a New York radio station when it was sold in 1976. Here were his final words on his final broadcast…

“And so, for the last time I’m signing off, proud of my association with this unique institution, mindful of things I might have done better, grateful for the company of thousands of gifted colleagues, and thankful to you, for being — as we used to say in those hackneyed but truthful fundraising messages — for being the public in public radio.
