To: Newcaster, Newscast Unit
After working at NPR as a freelancer over the past few months, Jamie McIntyre is joining the Newscast unit fulltime as an anchor. McIntyre will be heard on the bottom-of-the-hour newscasts, weekdays during All Things Considered.
McIntyre brings a wealth of experience to NPR. In his over 35 years as a journalist he has reported across several platforms, including radio, television, print and online. He spent 13 years with WTOP all-news radio in Washington, D.C. and is probably best known for his 16 years as Senior Pentagon correspondent for CNN, covering wars in Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq, and, along the way, travelling to more than 65 countries around the world. Most recently, McIntyre has been writing for a blog he created offering insight on national security issues and teaching at the University of Maryland as an Adjunct Professor for the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism. In addition to being a serious journalist, he’s got a funny side: he was selected last year as the “Funniest Reporter in DC,” during National Press Club’s Reporters without Borders charity event.
His official start date is October 17.
