"'Good morning...' And she's off. Here in the soundproof studio, though, 'Good night' seems like the more appropriate greeting. It is only 1:45 a.m."

So writes New York Times reporter Brian Stelter, describing Morning Edition co-host Renee Montagne's "day" behind the mic. You can find this and other insights about the show in the article published by the paper today, Unique Morning Show on NPR Thrives as Others Slip.

The large feature offers a great look at Morning Edition, and features interviews with NPR's senior VP of News Margaret Low Smith, Morning Edition executive producer Madhulika Sikka and, of course, show hosts Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep.

Enjoy the read, and thanks for waking up with NPR and public radio stations every day.
