They joined NPR in 2016 as an intern for All Things Considered on the weekend. Born and raised in Tallahassee, Fla., Whitley-Berry has a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from Texas Christian University.

For NPR, they've covered LGBTQ representation in children's television, the impact of U.S. sanctions from Iran, the first legal same-sex marriage ceremony in the U.S. and Vice President Joe Biden's 2020 presidential bid from the floor of his moving campaign bus somewhere in rural Iowa.

When they're not directing Morning Edition overnight, Whitley-Berry directs special coverage on behalf of NPR. They have led live broadcasts of the House impeachment inquiry, the Senate impeachment trial and President George H.W. Bush's funeral.

If they're not working, you can find them on the hunt for a good taqueria.
