Tonya Mosley is the new co-host of Here & Now, the midday news and talk show from NPR and WBUR in Boston.
Mosley will join co-hosts Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson Aug. 5 on the program that airs on 475 stations, NPR and WBUR announced Wednesday.
Mosley has worked as the Silicon Valley bureau chief since 2017 for San Francisco’s KQED. She also hosts the station’s Truth Be Told podcast, an advice show by and for people of color.
Earlier in her career Mosley covered education for WBUR and was a Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford. She produced the four-part series Black in Seattle for KUOW, for which she won a national Edward R. Murrow award.
WBUR Managing Director of News and Programming Sam Fleming said Mosley’s “impressive reporting and inquisitive nature makes her a great fit to complement our current co-hosts.”
Here & Now premiered at WBUR in 1997. The program expanded to two hours in 2013 in partnership with NPR.
