Cheryl Corley is named Midwest Bureau Chief at NPR. Corley, who has been a reporter and correspondent at the network for 28 years, has been serving in the role on an interim basis. Corley has also been a key collaborator as part of NPR's criminal justice vertical. She has also been a regular substitute host for “All Things Considered Weekends,” “Morning Edition,” “Tell Me More,” and “News and Notes.”
"Now I will use that experience and expertise in my new role as Midwest Bureau Chief. It's a job I've held on an acting basis since last August – editing and cultivating new voices for NPR and working with seasoned NPR and member station reporters,” Corley said in the announcement. “So, if you've heard about a good Midwest story, know a reporter who needs to get on the national air—send them my way! Looking forward to working with them and making NPR sound better than ever."
