“Joining NPR from the world of print was a bit like entering the Marine Corps at Parris Island,” says NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik in an interview with Chip Scanlan on “You’re completely stripped down and then built back up.” Folkenflick talks about his transition to radio reporting, how he puts a story together, and how NPR’s reputation is different than newspapers’. It’s a “gratifying shift,” he says, to hear not what’s wrong about the newspaper he works for, but what’s right about NPR.
