CRAIG WINDHAM, the longtime anchor and reporter for NPR, died SUNDAY night (2/28) of a pulmonary embolism at 66, the network reported. WINDHAM worked at UNISTAR/RKO RADIO NETWORK and WASH/WASHINGTON before joining NPR in 1995.
In an email to staff reported by NPR's blog, Executive Producer ROBERT GARCIA wrote that WINDHAM "touched so many lives. He was one the best reporters and anchors I have ever had the privilege of working with in my 40 years in this business. His beautiful writing, his use of sound, his calm, steady, gorgeous delivery -- all marked the work of a caring journalist who loved nothing more than telling a good story, adding the texture that took you there, and leaving every listener invested in some way -- moved or informed."
