Susan Stamberg, a 15-year veteran of National Public Radio's daily news magazine, "All Things Considered," said farewell to her co-host role Monday to begin preparation for hosting NPR's new Sunday morning "Weekend Edition," scheduled to premiere next winter.
"I'm not saying goodby to listeners," she said on the air Monday night, "just getting ready to greet them on a whole new day."
Stamberg will appear from time to time on "All Things Considered" as a special reporter until "Weekend Edition" is launched sometime in January.
Noel Adams will continue as host of "All Things Considered." A replacement for Stamberg has not yet been named.
