NPR guest host and former reporter CELESTE HEADLEE is joining GEORGIA PUBLIC BROADCASTING as host of a new show to air on GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY's WRAS/ATLANTA, which GPB recently announced it will program with News-Talk in daytime hours starting in JUNE.
HEADLEE, the former host of PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL and WNYC/NEW YORK's "THE TAKEAWAY," will host a one-hour daily show on WRAS.
GPB Pres./CEO TEYA RYAN said, “GPB is thrilled to have a journalist of CELESTE’s merit to host our first one-hour local radio program in ATLANTA. This move continues to show our commitment to providing an all-news and information public radio schedule not currently available to Atlantans. We feel very fortunate to have CELESTE at the helm of the program, and know that she will be a great addition to the local community.”
