December 9, 2011 at 5:09 AM (PT)
With AUDIE CORNISH moving to fill in as host of the weekday "ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" for 2012, NPR has assigned its National Security Correspondent RACHEL MARTIN to fill in for CORNISH as host of "WEEKEND EDITION SUNDAY" for 2012.
CORNISH is hosting the weekday show while regular host MICHELE NORRIS steps down due to her husband's work on President OBAMA's re-election campaign; NORRIS is expected to return to "ATC" after the election, with CORNISH returning to the weekend show. MARTIN rejoined NPR in 2010 after two years at ABC NEWS.
