witf brings you national and international news seven days a week on witf FM.  That is made possible in part with All Things Considered on the weekends at 5:00pm.  The program is going through a bit of a transformation.  The whole team that produces the show has picked up their belongings in Washington D.C. and moved west to Culver City, California at NPR West. 

This Saturday, September 21st, when All Things Considered goes live, you'll hear many new things. Chief among them is new host Arun Rath. Arun brings strong journalism and deep compassion to the host chair and I believe your listeners will feel a strong connection with Arun from the start.

Rath comes to the role of All Things Considered host after distinguishing himself in public media as a reporter, producer and editor, most recently as a senior reporter for the PBS series Frontline and The World® on WGBH Boston. He began his journalism career as an NPR intern at an NPR call-in program called Talk of the Nation, eventually joining the staff and becoming the show's director after working on several NPR News programs during the 1990s. Rath also had producing rolls with On The Media and Studio 360.  He moved to television in 2005 to report and manage radio partnerships for Frontline.  He reported and produced three films for Frontline, the latest being an investigation of alleged war crimes committed by U.S. Marines in Haditha, Iraq.

The NPR West-based staff of All Things Considered is invigorated with a new host and from a different studio.  Be sure to tune to All Things Considered on the weekends at 5 on witf FM.  If you happen to be closer to your television instead of your radio at that time, then be sure to check out the newly expanded PBS Newshour on witf TV.
