All Things Considered
At 5 p.m. EDT on May 3, 1971, the first edition of All Things Considered went on the air. In the nearly four decades since, almost everything about the program has changed — the hosts and producers, the length of the program, the equipment used, even the audience. But one thing remains the same: the determination to get the day's big stories on the air, and to bring them alive through sound and voice.
For two hours every weekday, All Things Considered hosts Robert Siegel, Michele Norris and Melissa Block present the program's trademark mix of news, interviews, commentaries, reviews and offbeat features.
The program rings with the disparate voices of its commentators, from tech guru Omar Gallaga to poet Andrei Codrescu to political columnists David Brooks and E.J. Dionne. It hums with the distinctive music that threads between reports. And by the time All Things Considered marked its 30th anniversary on the air, the program had earned many of journalism's highest honors, including the Peabody, duPont-Columbia and Overseas Press Club awards.
The news doesn't stop on the weekends, so in 1977, All Things Considered expanded to seven days a week with one-hour news magazines weekend evenings. Today All Things Considered on the weekend is hosted by Guy Raz, NPR's former bureau chief in Berlin and London.
