About Audie Cornish
Along with Robert Siegel and Melissa Block, Audie Cornish is a program host on NPR’s All Things Considered. Previously, Cornish served as host of Weekend Edition Sunday. Prior to moving into that host position in the fall of 2011, Cornish reported from Capitol Hill for NPR News, covering issues and power in both the House and Senate and specializing in financial industry policy. She was part of a NPR’s six-person reporting team during the 2008 presidential election, and had a featured role in coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
Cornish comes to Washington, D.C., from Nashville, where she covered the South for NPR, including many of the Gulf states left reeling by the 2005 hurricane season. Before coming to NPR, she was a reporter for Boston’s award-winning public radio station WBUR. In 2005, Cornish shared in a first prize in the National Awards for Education Writing for “Reading, Writing, and Race,” a study of the achievement gap. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
This event is sponsored in part by Virginia529 College Savings Plan.
