    Initially, journalist Audie Cornish was just sitting in for NPR stalwart Michele Norris as she sat out the 2012 election due to a conflict of interest. But something remarkable happened as Cornish's "pleasantly deep, warm and friendly, with an ever-so-slight rasp" of a voice resonated with audiences. It led to NPR's announcement this year that Cornish would become a permanent host for All Things Considered. Originally from Boston, Cornish previously hosted NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday show.
