Audie Sets New Tone: ‘Brunch With Cocktails’

This Sunday  a new voice will grace the airwaves of NPR’s Weekend Edition. It’s Audie Cornish‘s first day as host of the weekly morning program. Cornish, who has been a reporter with NPR since 2006, is the first new host of the show in more than 20 years, after Liane Hansen retired in May.

“I want Weekend Edition to feel like brunch with cocktails,” says Cornish of her new gig. “I want people to sit at my table and feel comfortable.”

Sunday stories will include the 2012 presidential campaign and the turmoil in Libya,  visiting a museum at Ground Zero. Also in the lineup is a new media feature with NPR correspondent David Folkenflik, she’ll catch up with Grammy-winning rocker Lenny Kravitz, and try her hand at a Weekend Edition Sunday favorite – the puzzle with Will Shortz.
