Ruling the Airwaves

Susan Stamberg

In 1972 Susan Stamberg became America’s first female full-time anchor of a national nightly news broadcast as one of the original co-hosts of NPR’s All Things Considered.

Susan Stamberg

Susan Stamberg, longtime host and special correspondent for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, “a world that totally enwraps you in Jewishness.” While not an observant Jew, Susan nonetheless feels sociologically and ethnically Jewish, and credits Jewish values, among other things, for her interest in learning, opinion, and discussion.
