For nearly three decades, NPR's "Morning Edition" has prepared listeners for the day ahead with two hours of up-to-the-minute news, background analysis, commentary, and coverage of arts and sports. With nearly 14 million listeners, "Morning Edition" draws public radio's largest audience. One of the most respected news magazines in the world, "Morning Edition" airs Monday through Friday on more than 660 NPR stations across the United States and around the globe on NPR's international services. Its cast of regulars includes some of the most familiar voices on radio: correspondent Susan Stamberg; commentator Frank Deford; news analysts Cokie Roberts; and newscasters Jean Cochran and Carl Kasell. Produced by NPR in Washington, D.C., "Morning Edition" draws on reporting from correspondents based in 17 countries around the world, and producers and reporters in 17 locations in the U.S. Their reporting is supplemented by NPR member station reporters across the country and a strong corps of independent producers and reporters in the public radio system. Since its debut in 1979, "Morning Edition" has garnered broadcasting's highest honors — including the George Foster Peabody Award and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.
