She’s in the Broadcasting and Radio Halls of Fame. 

She’s one of NPR’s revered "Founding Mothers" along with names like Cokie Roberts, Nina Totenberg and Linda Wertheimer.

Susan Stamberg has spent more than 45 years at NPR, as a host of All Things Considered and other programs, bringing the news and other stories to listeners across the country, and today, she joins host Mike Collins to talk about her life in radio- including her broadcast debut as a “weather girl,” about being a lone woman in a male dominated industry, about navigating through the new world of digital and social media as a radio host, and more.
