NPR’s Scott Detrow will serve as weekend host of All Things Considered and co-host of the daily news podcast Consider This

Detrow replaces Michel Martin, who joined Morning Edition as a host earlier this year. Detrow’s first day hosting the weekend program will be June 24.

“I’m thrilled to be joining All Things Considered on the weekends,” Detrow said in a press release. “Over the years I’ve worked closely with the production team and the hosts on so many breaking news stories out of Washington — including a memorable time where I had to run to catch a campaign bus on live radio — and have always been impressed by how hard they work and how smart they are. I can’t wait to collaborate with the ATC team every day.”

Since 2020, Detrow has served as NPR’s White House correspondent. He also helped launch the NPR Politics Podcast, which he co-hosts. 

“With a presidential election already underway, there will be a lot of political news to cover,” Detrow added in the release. “But I’m also really looking forward to branching out into other areas, including the cultural, musical, and sports news that listeners look for on the weekends.”

NPR plans to begin “experimenting with the sound of the show and the way we produce it” with Detrow as host, Eric Marrapodi, NPR’s VP of news programming, said in the release.

“We want to further integrate the Consider This podcast with the weekend show. We also look forward to Scott bringing his original enterprise reporting on a range of topics,” Marrapodi added. “His experience on the White House beat had him chasing the president around the country and the world to bring our audiences great reporting with good humor. He’ll bring that same energy and commitment to bringing home stories for All Things Considered audiences.”

Prior to joining NPR in 2015, Detrow worked for member stations WITF in Harrisburg, Pa., and KQED in San Francisco. He started in public radio at WFUV in New York.
