NPR West Female Staffers Pose with George Clooney

This week has been star-filled over at NPR West in Culver City. First, Brad Pitt came by for an interview. Then, on Wednesday, the ABC-TV hit sitcom Modern Family used the premises to shoot scenes for an upcoming episode during which Claire (Julie Bowen) is radio-interviewed about her run for town council.

Finally, today, George Clooney swung by to tape a chat for “All Things Considered.” NPR producer Ben Bergman shared the picture below, and two things struck FishbowlLA: 1) We had no idea the ratio of NPR West staff was so heavily skewed to female; and 2) It’s hilarious how the majority gender group appears to have pushed Bergman to a barely visible, behind-the-pack position:

Bergman tweeted another shot of Clooney solo, holding up an “I ♥ NPR” sign. We strongly advise all NPR stations to make liberal use of that endorsement during upcoming pledge drives.
