Andrea Seabrook, a reporter and substitute host for NPR News since 2001, joined “All Things Considered” as its weekend host.
For the past four years, Seabrook has covered Congress for NPR News, most recently as Congressional correspondent. She joined NPR in 1998 as an editorial assistant with NPR Music and, later, “Morning Edition.” She also was named reporter in NPR News Mexico Bureau, and was one of four anchors heading NPR News’ nine-hour November 2006 election coverage.
Seabrook swaps jobs with Debbie Elliott, who has been named Congressional correspondent after serving as weekend host of “All Things Considered” since September 2005.
Elliott came to NPR in 1995, covering politics as a reporter and correspondent based in the South. She was part of NPR’s 2000 presidential election team, where she reported from Florida on the election and contested results that followed.
