Notes 2018 January
Change Coming To All Things Considered
After 30 years, Robert Siegel is saying farewell to All Things Considered. His last day as host is this Friday, January 5.

Siegel has been a staple of NPR’s coverage for four decades. You can learn more about his storied career here. And you can join listeners around the country this week in sharing your memories and appreciations of Robert on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #thanksrobert.

Meantime, we’re excited to share that Mary Louise Kelly will officially move into the ATC host chair on January 17.

Kelly combines sterling editorial judgment, intellectual depth and rigor, and a broad array of interests. She’s no stranger to audiences, given her guest hosting on many NPR news programs as well as her work as National Security Correspondent.

NextGen Affordable Housing Stories
If you have enjoyed The View From Here: Place And Privilege, we’re pleased to share continued coverage of housing affordability in Sacramento.

Beginning January 9th, we’ll release one webstory weekly, leading up to a bonus podcast of Place And Privilege. Each multimedia story is composed by student journalists as part of the Next Generation Radio program. CapRadio is proud to partner with NextGen, and this year, these talented students produced an entire narrative in just one week focused on personal housing stories in our region.

Stay tuned to for more.

A New Member Of The News Team
Ezra David Romero is our new Environment Reporter. Romero is an accomplished multimedia journalist who comes to us from Valley Public Radio in Fresno where he spent the last five years covering agriculture and environment issues in the region between Los Angeles and Sacramento. His stories have run on NPR programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Here & Now.

Romero is a graduate of Fresno State, where he studied digital media and geography. Earlier in his career, he worked for the Fresno Bee covering police, elections, government, and higher education. He’s filmed multiple award-winning documentaries and has won five Golden Mike Awards through RTNA of Southern California for his radio reporting. In 2016, he was awarded a second place podcast award from PRNDI.

"We've watched and admired Ezra's work from afar for years, " said Linnea Edmeier, Managing Editor for News and Information. "He brings enthusiasm and a fondness for the outdoors to his award winning reporting, and our team is grateful to have him." Romero’s excited to be located in the Sacramento region and in his spare time, he hikes the Sierra Nevada, road trips the Pacific Coast and frequently visits ice cream shops. Follow him on Twitter @ezraromero.
