The Curious Listener: A Host Of Updates Behind The Mic

Sometimes our listeners are surprised not to hear an NPR host or reporter in their regular on-air spot. Have no fear, your favorites are probably still here – just in a different role.

For example, you may have noticed a new sound to some NPR weekend shows - Rachel Martin moving into a permanent spot hosting Weekend Edition Sunday, and the longtime voice of All Things Considered on Saturdays and Sundays, Guy Raz, is picking up as with the TED Radio Hour starting this spring.

Check out this exchange with NPR Listener Services to find out about other hosting updates, and visit for the latest programming and schedules in your city.


When is Audie Cornish returning to host Weekend Edition - Sunday? I thought she was only going to be away during the presidential election. I miss her!
