NPR WHITE HOUSE correspondent ARI SHAPIRO will become the network's new LONDON correspondent starting in JANUARY 2014. SHAPIRO will be replacing PHILIP REEVES, who is moving to the position of ISLAMABAD correspondent.
"This post requires an extraordinary constellation of reporting skills. ARI has it all," said NPR NEWS SVP MARGARET LOW SMITH. "He is a first class journalist and a master storyteller. He produces some of NPR's most compelling stories and when he is on the air people sit up and listen. I can't wait to hear him in LONDON and beyond."
