David Greene
Co-Host, Morning Edition

David Greene co-hosts NPRs #1 newsmagazine Morning Edition alongside Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep. David has interviewed everyone from presidents to pop stars, but he believes that everyone, whether famous or not, has a compelling story to tell - it just takes listening. 

David has brought home human interest stories from places like North Dakota, as Americans grapple with the issue of same-sex marriage, and Crimea, where uneasiness around geopolitical unrest and national identity is perennial and complex. Prior to stepping into the host chair, David spent two years abroad as an NPR International correspondent based in Moscow. During the Arab Spring, David spent a month reporting from Libya as NATO bombs fell on Tripoli, for which he was honored with the Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize. 

David also spent four years covering the G.W. Bush administration; a position that led him to five continents, to NPRs "spacious" booth in the basement of the West Wing and abroad Air Force One, as President Bush first surveyed the devastation from Hurricane Katrina and afterward met with affected New Orleans residents. David reported deeply on Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign and, after President Obama took office, spent three months driving across America documenting how the recession was affecting the lives of regular Americans

David was a reporter for the Baltimore Sun for nearly seven years before he joined NPR in 2005. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard with a degree in government.


Sonari Glinton

In addition to his deep and ongoing coverage of GM's road back to profitability, Glinton has traveled throughout the Midwest to bring back reports on impactful national news - the tornado in Joplin, MO; the 2012 presidential race - and has also covered the U.S. Senate and House for NPR.

Glinton first joined NPR as a producer for All Things Considered, in 2007. While his stamp on the newsmagazine includes major newsmaker interviews ranging from UN Ambassador Susan Rice to Joan Rivers, his favorite project is hands down Robert Siegels 50 Great Voices piece on Nat King Cole.
