All Things Considered

It is a sad week in Radioland this week as one of our brightest lights retires from his post. 

Robert Siegel joined NPR in 1976 and he’s been there ever since. He’ll leave the network at the end of next week. Siegel became host of All Things Considered in 1987. But before that he played an important role in the network’s growth. He opened NPR’s first overseas bureau, in London, in 1979 and stayed there for four years.

Robert Siegel’s final day as host of All Things Considered will be January 5th and it is a great pleasure to welcome his to the RT this morning.

WAMC listeners noticed a new voice on the air in September when Arun Rath took over the host’s chair at NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered, which is now broadcasting from NPR West in Culver City, Calif.
