NPR Names Eva Rodriguez Vice President and Executive Editor

NPR has named Eva Rodriguez as its next Vice President and Executive Editor.

Rodriguez joins the outlet after serving as editor-in-chief of The Fuller Project, a non-profit newsroom that covers issues affecting women. She previously worked at The Washington Post and The New York Times.

“I felt that with NPR, I could bring all of myself and all of my experiences to bear on what we do on a daily basis,” Rodriguez told NPR. “There’s just nothing off the table, and there’s something really, really appealing about that.”

She steps into the role previously held by Terence Samuel, who departed the outlet to lead USA Today.

Rodriguez — a first-generation Cuban-American, joins the outlet during a tumultuous time. The network has laid off 10% of its staff during the year due to a $30 million budget gap. However, NPR CEO John Lansing has reassured employees that the network is in a more sustainable place since the cuts took place.

Her first day will be Monday, September 11th.
