NPR Welcomes Martin Back from ABC News

This just in…an internal memo from Steve Drummond, NPR’s senior national editor:

I’m hugely delighted to announce that Rachel Martin is returning to NPR as National Security Correspondent. She’ll join Bruce Auster‘s team with Tom Gjelten, Tom Bowman, and Dina Temple-Raston, and she’ll focus on a mix of military and intelligence issues.

Since 2008 Rachel has been covering the White House and national security for ABC News. Many of you know Rachel from her previous work at NPR. She’s reported from Berlin for the Foreign Desk and covered religion on the National Desk. She was part of the team of NPR journalists who covered the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007 and most recently hosted the Bryant Park Project.

She also worked as a free-lance reporter for NPR from Afghanistan and she has reported from Iraq. And Rachel is yet another distinguished graduate of member station KQED in San Francisco. Those like me who’ve worked with Rachel know that she’s an aggressive reporter, a gifted writer and a great colleague. I know she’ll hit the ground running. Rachel begins mid-May — please join me in welcoming her back.
