The Faces behind the voices | NPR Radio Hosts

I listen to a lot of NPR, like a disgusting amount. I think it’s sort of a relaxation thing after owning a shop for 10 years, and constantly being bombarded by pounding music and questions like “Hey have you heard of that band the alcoholic anal blasters? Well, that and I always am interested in what NPR has to offer. I know each host’s name, personality, and I look forward to each show on a daily or weekly basis. But recently I’ve been thinking how weird it is that I have no picture of these people in my mind – so one day I decided to google Ira Glass, but I didn’t type in Ira Glass I typed in “good looking Jewish guy with glasses.” I don’t know why I did this, but you know what happened? Ira motherfucking Glass showed up. Well, after that win I started looking up all of my favorite hosts and I thought I would share my findings with you. So here are a few names and it’s your turn to take a guess on who’s who at NPR. Ira Glass, Audie Cornish, Diane Rehm, Tom Magliozzi, Terry Gross, Ray Magliozzi, Steve Inskeep, Renee Montagne, Jad Abumrad, Robert Krulwich, Tom Ashbrook.
