Welcoming Remarks

Susan Stamberg's familiar voice informs and entertains a nationwide audience on National Public Radio, where her news stories and interviews have enlightened radio audiences for more than thirty years. In 1972, Stamberg became the first woman to anchor a nightly news program, and for fourteen years she served as the cohost of the award-winning All Things Considered. She then moved on to Weekend Edition Sunday and now is NPR Special Correspondent, primarily for NPR’s Morning Edition. She has regularly reported and spoken on women and women’s issues. A few examples of her work include interviews with Annie Leibowitz, Rosa Parks, Nancy Reagan, and Mary Hemingway; reports from Nairobi on the United Nations women's conference in 1985, a celebration of Eleanor Roosevelt's one-hundredth birthday, and interviews on what it means to be male in America. She describes her life and career in radio in TALK: NPR's Susan Stamberg Considers All Things. She is the recipient of all the major awards in broadcasting and has received numerous honorary degrees.
