No matter how you take your public radio — a downloaded TED Radio Hour podcast or a Morning Edition show broadcast on your member station — there's one voice familiar to all NPR listeners. That's the NPR announcer, who voices credit to the member stations, corporations and institutions that generously support NPR and public radio.

Come November, listeners will hear a new voice saying things such as "Support for NPR comes from ..." and "This [pause] is NPR" (our personal favorite). Sabrina Farhi is joining us in Washington, D.C., as the NPR announcer alongside the iconic Frank Tavares, who has voiced NPR's funding credits for more than three decades. You'll get to know her quickly once her voice comes on the air in November. But until then, you can hear her exclusively right here, in a special audio ProFile.
