'All Things Considered' Turns 40
May 5, 2011 at 3:58 AM (PT)
NPR's "ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" celebrated its 40th anniversary TUESDAY (5/3).
The show was the first news program to air on the then-fledgling network, hosted by ROBERT CONLEY for its first three months (he also hosted the show's weekend edition when it launched in 1977). The show is now hosted by ROBERT SIEGEL, MICHELE NORRIS and MELISSA BLOCK, with GUY RAZ hosting the weekend version.
