Jay Kernis, NPR’s senior v.p. of programming, answered questions about Bob Edwards from listeners today in an online chat. “The news demands of the broadcast require more than one host to keep the program timely every morning,” he said. Kernis has also written an FAQ: “Twenty-five years ago, Morning Edition was created with a single, in-studio host. That model is no longer sufficient to bring the weight of credible, in-depth reporting that we are demanding of ourselves.”
