BOSTON UNIVERSITY noncommercial Talk WBUR/BOSTON has named longtime public radio newsman ANTHONY BROOKS as co-host of the daily "RADIO BOSTON" news magazine show, effective JANUARY 31st. BROOKS, a veteran NPR reporter who most recently covered the 2010 gubernatorial and Congressional races for WBUR, will work alongside MEGHNA CHAKRABARTI on the show.
"ANTHONY is in the top echelon of public radio journalists across the country, and we're excited to have him full-time at WBUR," said Managing Director of News and Programming SAM FLEMING. "Pairing him with MEGHNA creates a richness of sound and variety for 'RADIO BOSTON,' as well as a formidable team. Plus, this approach enables each host to get out of the studio, and into the community, more often."
