Ailsa Chang will host NPR's "All Things Considered" along with Audie Cornish, Mary Louise Kelly and Ari Shapiro. Noel King will join David Greene, Steve Inskeep and Rachel Martin as the fourth host of Morning Edition and the "Up First" podcast. Most recently, Chang was a correspondent for NPR's "Planet Money" podcast. She landed in public radio after practicing law for a few years.

"Audiences already know and love Noel and Ailsa from NPR's Peabody award-winning podcast "Planet Money." Now they will hear them daily hosting our morning and evening drive news magazines," said Chris Turpin, acting Senior Vice President for News. "They will join seasoned teams that have mastered deep-dive, sound-rich, enterprise journalism alongside live and on-location reporting. The expanded host lineup will strengthen both shows by allowing them to take on more ambitious projects both in the U.S and overseas."

"In my time as a radio journalist, the two things I have loved most are long-form reporting and live hosting. Now I get to take on a job that blends these two worlds," said Chang. "It can be lonely as a reporter. One of the happiest parts of this new role is joining a team of smart, dogged, creative people who have each other's backs every day and who take their jobs so seriously. Enough cannot be said about Audie, Ari and Mary Louise - three individuals whom I admire as journalists and as people."
