'Consider This' from NPR replaces 'Coronavirus Daily' to cover COVID-19 developments, civil rights uprisings, and other top stories each weekday

Monday, June 29, 2020; Washington, D.C. – Today listeners to Coronavirus Daily will find a new podcast in its place - one that will continue to follow the pandemic, but also cover civil rights uprisings across the country, the ongoing economic crisis, the upcoming presidential election, and the other stories you need to know each day.

Consider This from NPR, hosted by Kelly McEvers and hosts from NPR's flagship news magazine, All Things Considered, will provide an essential guide to what happened today and why it matters. In about 10 minutes each weekday, listeners will hear interviews, analysis, and context around the day's biggest stories.

"With this change in editorial scope, Consider This will become our signature afternoon news podcast, offering listeners a smart take on the major stories of the day, using the full resources of NPR," said Anya Grundmann, senior vice president for programming and audience development.

"As we've said on the show, this pandemic is still with us. It's not going away, and neither are we," said host Kelly McEvers. "But we also know there's a lot to talk about each day. And we want to be there for our listeners."

"We are in an extraordinary moment – our purpose as a news organization has never been clearer," said host Ailsa Chang. "As people are commuting less in their cars these days and listening to us in other ways, I'm thrilled we will be able to stay connected with our listeners through a podcast as well."

"Every day, the All Things Considered team provides two hours of compelling, surprising, memorable radio to help listeners make sense of their day, and their world. We're excited to bring the best stories to a new audience that can listen any time," said host Ari Shapiro.

Launched in March, Coronavirus Daily was NPR's fastest growing podcast to date. It drew from NPR's network-wide coronavirus coverage, including from Member stations across the country and NPR's international desk, as well as relevant episodes from other NPR podcasts such as Short Wave, The Indicator, and Life Kit.
