Bob Edwards Dies: Longtime Anchor Of NPR’s ‘Morning Edition’ & SiriusXM Host Was 76

Reading now: 729

Bob Edwards, a Peabody-winning National Radio Hall of Famer who anchored NPR’s Morning Edition for nearly a quarter-century before moving to satellite radio, died Saturday.

He was 76. National Public Radio announced his death but did not provide details. Edwards joined the radio pubcaster in 1974 and soon afterward became a co-host of its signature news program All Things Considered with Susan Stamberg.

He left that show in 1979 to be the founding anchor of Morning Edition, which he would host with his warm baritone until 2004.

His first interview for the show was Charles Osgood, who died last month. “Bob Edwards understood the intimate and directly personal connection with audiences that distinguishes audio journalism from other mediums,” NPR CEO John Lansing wrote in announcing the death, “and for decades he was a trusted voice in the lives of millions of public radio listeners.” RELATED: NPR’s Linda Wertheimer, One Of The Network’s “Founding Mothers,” Announces Retirement Edwards was removed as Morning Edition not long before what would have been his 25th anniversary on the show.
