Why Do NPR Reporters Have Such Great Names?
NPR staffer Susan Stamberg in her office in 1979 (Barry Thumma/Reuters) What makes NPR reporters' names so particularly mellifluous? There's that pleasing alliteration--Allison Aubrey, Louisa Lim, Carl Kassell, Susan Stamberg. And it's hard to match those mouth-filling double-barrelled names. Think Ofeibia Quist-Arcton, Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson, Chana Joffe-Walt, Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, Dina Temple-Raston, Charlayne Hunter-Gault.
