NPR names Brittany Luse as host of "It's Been a Minute." She's known for hosting the podcasts "For Colored Nerds" and "The Nod," will take over on the mic starting on Friday, October 7. Luse is a journalist, on-air host and cultural critic. Most recently, she co-hosted "For Colored Nerds" and previously hosted "The Nod" and "Sampler" podcasts. She's written for Vulture and Harper's Bazaar, among others, and edited for the podcasts Planet Money and Not Past It.

"Over the past five years, It's Been a Minute has become a mainstay for listeners trying to make sense of an increasingly unpredictable cultural landscape," said Luse. "I'm honored to join such a dedicated team as host, and excited to learn and grow alongside It's Been a Minute's devoted and responsive listeners. I've spent the entirety of my eight-year hosting career helping audiences to connect the dots between culture and current events, and I look forward to continuing and expanding that work at my new home."

Executive Producer Veralyn Williams added, "The beauty of It's Been a Minute over the years was getting to spend time with Sam Sanders, someone who asks deep questions about our culture and unavoidable news. So, finding someone like Brittany - who could step into It's Been a Minute's solid foundation, while also making us want to lean into her unique curiosities about everything from finding love on reality TV to the gender politics of fringe online communities - is what I can only describe as public radio magic."

"Brittany is one of the most exciting -- and essential -- voices in pop culture podcasting," said VP of Programming and New Content Development Yolanda Sangweni. "She brings deep curiosity, empathy, and joy to the mic and to her storytelling. We are beyond thrilled to be re-imagining It's Been a Minute with Brittany at the helm."
