David Greene has co-hosted Morning Edition since 2012

David Greene has been a staple of NPR’s coverage of world events for 16 years. He’s reported from Moscow, Siberia, the Middle East, all over America and from Washington, D.C., as a White House correspondent.

He’s spoken with world leaders, celebrities, and people from all walks of life, in ordinary and in trying circumstances. And, for the past several years, you’ve heard David Greene as one of the hosts of Morning Edition. But at the end of the year, he will take a different path.

After all those years of getting up early, of following and reporting the news, he’s unplugging his microphone. The future is a bit of a mystery. But before David Greene starts that journey, we spend time with him.
