A Hosting Update at NPR…

National Security Correspondent Rachel Martin will step in to host “Weekend Edition Sunday” beginning in January, as Audie Cornish heads to “All Things Considered” for 2012. (Remember: Audie is on a one-year assignment with ATC while Michele Norris is not hosting through the inauguration. She stepped down temporarily because her husband, Broderick Johnson, took a job working as a senior adviser for President Obama’s reelection campaign.)

About Rachel: For the last year and a half, Rachel has been NPR’s National Security Correspondent, providing coverage of military and intelligence issues. Her reporting this year has included what they’re describing as a vivid portrait of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and a series on women in the military.

Rachel has been a foreign correspondent for NPR based in Berlin, and before that she reported extensively from Afghanistan and later from Iraq where she covered the U.S. troop surge and the so-called Sunni awakening in Anbar province. Rachel got her start at KQED in San Francisco as producer and reporter. She was part of the team that launched NPR’s morning news show – the gone but not forgotten Bryant Park Project. She also formerly covered the White House for ABC.

She frequently guest hosts NPR programs, too – as she did just recently for the weekend version of “All Things Considered.”
