ALL THINGS CONSIDERED
All Things Considered was the first public radio program ever inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame.
This evening drive-time news and information program was created by Bill Siemering and began on National Public Radio on May 3, 1971. All Things Considered offers listeners an intelligent, in-depth examination of the day’s events, offering features that stretch from around the world to America's backyard. The show features a lively mix of hard news, feature stories, commentaries, and cultural reviews, linked together by musical stitches designed to evoke an appropriate mood. Radio Hall of Fame inductee Susan Stamberg was the program's first anchor.
Today, senior host Robert Siegel and his colleagues anchor a brilliantly produced program, offering reports from NPR’s bureaus in Washington, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and London, as well as from NPR member stations and freelance reporters from around the world. Regular contributors have included Nina Totenberg, Sylvia Poggioli and Daniel Schorr.
All Things Considered is one of the most popular programs on public radio and has garnered some of broadcasting's highest honors, including the Peabody, DuPont and Overseas Press Club awards.
All Things Considered was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993.
