Taking a Breather...

And drum roll, please...I am actually taking OFF for a few days. The wonderful Cheryl Corley, from NPR's Chicago Bureau, will be here.

I'll let Cheryl tell you more about herself...

Thanks, Michel. I typically cover the Midwest, and New Orleans. I guess it would be best to say that I report on the central part of the U.S.! For those of you who are regular NPR listeners, you've heard me before. I've been around for a while reporting, as well as occasionally hosting. For the next few days, I'll be bringing Chicago's "windy city" sensibilities to Tell Me More. And we will all be working to keep Michel's standard intact — intriguing conversation...with some great blog notes, too. She's a hard-working woman, y'all. So Michel, enjoy those sweet, sweet days off!

Thanks Cheryl.

I will be back in a week — just in time to take the program to the National Association of Black Journalists' (NABJ) convention in Las Vegas. It's only the first of what I hope will be more broadcasts produced outside of our Washington studios (we like to call them "remotes"). We have all kinds of places we want to go...all over the world. NABJ is going to be the first. We'll be hosted there by our NPR member stations, and we hope we'll do you proud.

I'll keep the spa treatments to myself...
