NPR Podcast and Programming Executive Anya Grundmann to Depart

After 30 years at NPR, programming executive Anya Grundmann has announced she will depart the outlet at the end of the calendar year.

Since ascending to the chief programming role in 2015, Grundmann has overseen the network’s bevy of talk, music, and entertainment programs.

Additionally, she has managed the outlet’s growing roster of podcasts. In the latest podcast rankings from Triton Digital, eight of America’s 30 most-listened-to podcasts are produced by NPR.

“I’ve especially loved it when the sparks are flying, when we’ve imagined new ways we can lean into our enormous potential while staying true to our public service mission,” Grundmann told NPR after making her announcement. “It’s been the best kind of roller coaster ride.”

“She’s really legendary in the world of public media,” added CEO John Lansing. He continued by noting that Grundmann “led the podcasting revolution in many ways, and has been just an invaluable partner for me in my four years here.”
