Cara Tallo

Deputy Executive Producer, Invisibilia

Cara Tallo is the Deputy Executive Producer of Invisibilia at NPR. In this role, she oversees the team's reporting and works to develop digital and broadcast opportunities for the award-winning program.

Tallo has been with NPR for 17 years. She most recently served as Deputy Executive Producer of Morning Edition, where she coordinated story assignments and staffing for the 24-hour-a-day, 6-day-a-week staff. She came to NPR in 1999 as an intern for the National Desk, and has worked nearly every job at Morning Edition since then.

She has also reported her own pieces, directed live breaking coverage, and traveled the world producing for hosts and reporters, from Steve Inskeep to Nina Totenberg. Her work has not gone unrecognized: She's won the Overseas Press Club's Lowell Thomas Award for producing the 7-part "The Mid-East: A Century of Conflict"; and the National Association of Black Journalists' Salute to Excellence Award for her work producing Juan Williams' 3-part "March on Washington" series.

Tallo got her start in radio at WSBG/WVPO where she learned to write copy, anchor newscasts, and function effectively at all hours of the day and night.

She received a B.A. in Political Science and a B.S. in Communication from Houghton College in Houghton, NY.
