NPR's "WEEKEND ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" is moving from WASHINGTON to the network's NPR WEST production facility in CULVER CITY, CA. The move will take place this SUMMER.
"We're thrilled by this opportunity to expand our presence on the WEST COAST," said SP of News MARGARET LOW SMITH. "Moving the show west will broaden and deepen our coverage and allow us to bring strong geographic diversity to our programming. In addition, this plan gives us a new level of business and editorial continuity. By having a full team stationed at NPR WEST, we will be able to respond quickly if weather or a major news event incapacitates NPR headquarters."
