Fishbowl’s Finest: Guy Raz

Our male beauty of the day is NPR’s dapper Guy Raz. He’s the weekend host of NPR’s “All Things Considered.” Born and bred in Los Angeles, Raz, despite his super stylish hairdo, isn’t necessarily flashy. Word has it, he’s not stereotypical LA and is said to have a studious, mischievous streak. His bio says he’s just as likely to do a segment on international politics as he would a cooking feature or a chat with a Borneo-born jazz singer.

Raz jumped in from the lowest ranks of NPR as an intern in 1997. His first job there was as personal assistant to the late Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr. He became NPR’s Berlin Bureau Chief in 2000. In 2004 Raz left to be a Jerusalem correspondent for CNN. He returned to NPR in 2006.

He developed what has turned out to be a popular feature for NPR – it’s called “Three Minute Fiction.” Check it out here.

He’s a smart one, this Raz, and not just a pretty face. He has a master’s degree in history from Cambridge University (yes, the one in England).
