The Morning Edition regulars

        • Jean Cochran, newscaster: The Cincinnati native was known as Mary Jean Cochran when she attended Indian Hill Elementary School until her family left here in 1965. She was hired by National Public Radio in 1981 as a news writer and associate producer for Carl Kasell.

        • Alex Chadwick, correspondent: The 22-year NPR veteran feature writer and fill-in host was part of the team that created Morning Edition. He has reported for and hosted All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. As a free-lancer, he wrote CBS' 60 Minutes 25th Anniversary Special in 1993 and In the Killing Fields of America, the 1996 Peabody Award-winning CBS News special.

        • Carl Kasell, newscaster: The former North Carolina DJ and radio news director has read headlines on the hour since Morning Edition premiered. He's an accomplished magician who studied acting in high school from teacher Andy Griffith. He joined NPR in 1975 as a part-time newscaster for Weekend All Things Considered.

        • Cokie Roberts, senior news analyst: Since 1988, Ms. Roberts has split time between NPR and ABC News. ABC's chief congressional analyst and host of This Week with Sam Donaldson & Cokie Roberts spent 13 years as NPR's congressional correspondent. She has received numerous honors, including the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Everett McKinley Dirksen Award for congressional coverage.

        • Nina Totenberg, legal affairs correspondent: The former National Observer writer and New Times Magazine Washington editor joined NPR in 1975. Her 1991 scoop about Anita Hill's sexual harassment allegations against Clarence Thomas prompted the Senate Judiciary Committee to reopen Mr. Thomas' confirmation hearing — and won a Peabody Award for NPR. She received a prestigious du Pont-Columbia University silver baton in 1988 for her Supreme Court coverage. She also contributes to ABC's Nightline.
