NPR has announced that Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist Alison Stewart (most recently of MSNBC's "The Most with Alison Stewart") has been named one of the hosts of the network's new morning show, The Bryant Park Project.
The program is geared toward NPR's younger listening audience. Stewart will co-host with NPR reporter Luke Burbank.
For those unfamilar with Ms. Stewart, she begun her career (and won a Peabody for) covering the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections for MTV News. Since then, she's been a correspondent and anchor for CBS and NBC, before landing her own show last year with MSNBC.
This young radio enthusiast only hopes she'll show up as part of the NPR delegation for the NABJ Convention in Las Vegas this summer. As if it weren't mind-blowing enought to share a family-style Italian dinner with Farai Chideya, Karen Grigsby Bates, Michel Martin, Danyell Irby and Michele Norris in Indianapolis last year....
