About All Things Considered

Nearly four decades ago the creation of All Things Considered marked the invention of the radio newsmagazine. For two hours every weekday, All Things Considered presents a trademark mix of news, interviews, commentaries, reviews and offbeat features.

ATC hostsWeekday hosts Robert Siegel, Melissa Block, and Audie Cornish.

The program rings with the disparate voices of its commentators, from tech guru Omar Gallaga to poet Andrei Codrescu to political columnists David Brooks and E.J. Dionne. It hums with the distinctive music that threads between reports.

Its cast of regulars includes some of the most familiar voices on radio: correspondent Susan Stamberg; commentator Frank Deford; news analyst Cokie Roberts; and newscasters Jean Cochran and Paul Brown.

The program is produced and distributed by NPR.
