Beginning in September Ari Shapiro and Kelly McEvers will join the weekday line-up with Michel Martin on the weekends.  Ari Shapiro was recently an international correrspondent for NPR based in London, Kelly McEvers was a national correspondent based at NPR West, and Michel Martin was the previous host of Tell Me More which ended production last year.  Robert Siegel and Audie Cornish will continue to host All Things Considered.  

Melissa Block, who has been hosting All Things Considered for the past twelve years, will step away from the hosting chair to a special correspondent role.
