Ayesha Rascoe Named Host of NPR 'Weekend Edition' and 'Up First'

NPR turned to a familiar and distinctive voice for its listeners - veteran White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe - to become the new host of Weekend Edition Sunday.

In an interview, Rascoe expressed great eagerness to take on the new role beginning in late March, which will also entail hosting weekend installments of NPR's news podcast Up First along with Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon. The pace of the newsmagazine allows listeners to breathe a bit more deeply than its weekday counterparts, often offering longer segments and more cultural coverage.

"This job will allow me to show fully all sides of myself," Rascoe said. "I am someone who loves to ask tough questions and dig into policy and look at politics and world issues - all of that I've been able to do covering the White House. But I also like the arts and books and horror movies and thrillers and shows. And so I like being able to do that mix."
