    David GreeneDavid Greene is host of NPR’s Morning Edition, with Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne.

    For two years prior to taking on his current role in 2012, Greene was an NPR foreign correspondent based in Moscow covering the region from Ukraine and the Baltics, east to Siberia. During that time he brought listeners stories as wide ranging as Chernobyl 25 years later and Beatles-singing Russian Babushkas. He spent a month in Libya reporting riveting stories in the most difficult of circumstances as NATO bombs fell on Tripoli. He was honored with the 2011 Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize from WBUR and Boston University for that coverage of the Arab Spring.

    Greene’s voice became familiar to NPR listeners from his four years covering the White House. To report on former President George W. Bush’s second term, Greene spent hours in NPR’s spacious booth in the basement of the West Wing (it’s about the size of your average broom closet). He also spent time trekking across five continents, reporting on White House visits to places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Rwanda, Uruguay – and, of course, Crawford, Texas.


    Steve InskeepSteve Inskeep is host of Morning Edition, the most widely heard radio news program in the United States. He co-hosts the program with Renée Montagne and David Greene.

    Traveling from Baghdad to the wreckage of New Orleans, Inskeep has interviewed the survivors of disasters both natural and man-made. He has questioned Presidential candidates, warlords, authors, and musicians. He also interviews people who otherwise would be overlooked: a steelworker, a school board member, the mother of a soldier killed in war.

    Inskeep’s first full-time assignment for NPR was the 1996 presidential primary in New Hampshire. He went on to cover the Pentagon, the U.S. Senate, and the 2000 presidential campaign of George W. Bush.

    After the September 11 attacks, Inskeep covered the war in Afghanistan, the hunt for al-Qaida suspects in Pakistan, and the war in Iraq. In 2003, he was honored by the Press Club of Atlantic City with a National Headliner Award for investigating a military raid that went wrong in Afghanistan. He has twice been part of the NPR News team that was honored with an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton award for its coverage the war in Iraq.

    In 2004, Inskeep joined a team that reshaped Morning Edition. The new program aggressively covers breaking news. It is the place to hear the stories, not the sound bites, of people in the news. He led Morning Edition teams that hosted the program from New Orleans; investigated Iraqi police in Baghdad; and received a 2006 Robert F. Kennedy journalism award for “The Price of African Oil,” a series on conflict in Nigeria.


    Rachel MartinRachel Martin is host of NPR’s Morning Edition, with David Greene and Steve Inskeep.

    Previously, she was the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday. Prior to moving into the host position in the fall of 2012, Martin started as National Security Correspondent for NPR in May 2010. In that position she covered both defense and intelligence issues. She traveled regularly to Iraq and Afghanistan with the Secretary of Defense, reporting on the U.S. wars and the effectiveness of the Pentagon’s counterinsurgency strategy. Martin also reported extensively on the changing demographic of the U.S. military – from the debate over whether to allow women to fight in combat units – to the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Her reporting on how the military is changing also took her to a U.S. Air Force base in New Mexico for a rare look at how the military trains drone pilots.

    Martin was part of the team that launched NPR’s experimental morning news show, The Bryant Park Project, based in New York — a two-hour daily multimedia program that she co-hosted with Alison Stewart and Mike Pesca.
