Kelly McEvers is the host of NPR’s Embedded podcast, and has dug into members of the Trump administration’s pasts, reported additional stories behind police shootings caught on video, and visited a town ravaged by the opioid epidemic.
Before working on Embedded full-time in February 2018, Kelly McEvers was also a co-host of All Things Considered, NPR’s award-winning afternoon newsmagazine. She hosted the program from NPR West in Culver City, California.
Prior to that, McEvers ran NPR’s Beirut bureau, where she earned a George Foster Peabody award, an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia award, a Gracie award, and an Overseas Press Club mention for her 2012 coverage of the Syrian conflict.
McEvers has spent her career of storytelling from the front lines. Embedded enables McEvers to delve deeper into some of the world’s biggest stories, submersing listeners on a journey. As a longtime NPR correspondent and host, McEvers has covered stories from around the world. She has been tear-gassed in Bahrain; she has spent a night in a tent city with a Yemeni woman who would later share the Nobel Peace Prize; and she spent weeks inside Syria with anti-government rebels known as the Free Syrian Army. Embedded allows listeners to join McEvers on her adventures around the world.
