NPR announced that Scott Detrow has been selected as the weekend host of All Things Considered, NPR’s flagship evening news magazine, and the new co-host of the daily news podcast Consider This. All Things Considered, carried on weekends by 785 stations nationwide, is the most listened-to, afternoon drive-time, news radio program in the country. His first day on the air will be June 24th.

“I’m thrilled to be joining All Things Considered on the weekends. Over the years I’ve worked closely with the production team and the hosts on so many breaking news stories out of Washington – including a memorable time where I had to run to catch a campaign bus on live radio – and have always been impressed by how hard they work and how smart they are. I can’t wait to collaborate with the ATC team every day,” said Detrow. “With a presidential election already underway, there will be a lot of political news to cover. But I’m also really looking forward to branching out into other areas, including the cultural, musical, and sports news that listeners look for on the weekends.”

“With Scott at the helm of the show we’re going to be experimenting with the sound of the show and the way we produce it. We want to further integrate the Consider This podcast with the weekend show. We also look forward to Scott bringing his original enterprise reporting on a range of topics,” NPR’s VP of news programming Eric Marrapodi said. “His experience on the White House beat had him chasing the president around the country and the world to bring our audiences great reporting with good humor. He’ll bring that same energy and commitment to bringing home stories for All Things Considered audiences.”

Detrow has served as White House correspondent for NPR since 2020 and co-hosts the NPR Politics Podcast. He’s hosted live special coverage for high-profile hearings, primary elections, impeachment trials, and other news events, and has guest-hosted NPR’s news magazines. He joined NPR in 2015, reported on the 2016 presidential election, then worked for two years as a congressional correspondent before shifting his focus back to the campaign trail, covering the Democratic side of the 2020 presidential campaign. Detrow helped launch the NPR Politics Podcast and then grow it into a daily news show, and has hosted live episodes in front of packed audiences across the country. In 2021, for the 20th anniversary of 9/11 he produced an hour-long special in partnership with WITF about Flight 93 called Sacred Ground. In the past year he did a stint in Ukraine guest-hosting All Things Considered from Kyiv and Lviv, and more recently secured a news-making exclusive interview for the show with Senator John Fetterman. His poise in breaking news situations and ability to bring the audience into the story and help them understand it will serve him well in this new role.

Before NPR, Detrow worked as a statehouse reporter in both Pennsylvania and California, for member stations WITF and KQED. He also covered energy policy for NPR’s StateImpact project, where his reports on Pennsylvania’s hydraulic fracturing boom won a DuPont-Columbia Silver Baton and national Edward R. Murrow Award in 2013.

Detrow got his start in public radio at Fordham University’s WFUV. He graduated from Fordham, and also has a master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government.
