Bob Edwards "removed" from Morning Edition.

NPR : A Letter from Bob Edwards
March 24, 2004

Dear Listener,

Over the course of the last 24 hours I have been overwhelmed by the support and good wishes from all of you. As I have repeatedly said, Morning Edition and public radio have the most remarkable audience. Your thoughts about the program and me are a testament to that.

I want to take this opportunity to assure you all that I will be here at NPR for the long haul. And while this transition will be difficult for me -- I am leaving a post that I have loved and have given my heart to -- I look forward to continuing to be a significant part of NPR and the amazing program lineup.

After April 30, I will become a senior correspondent for NPR, and while it is true that we are still working out the details of that position, I have no doubt that all my needs will be met and that I will continue to do journalism for this fine institution.

The past 25 years at the helm of Morning Edition have been the best of my life. But I am not saying goodbye. I hope you continue to listen and support your public radio station."
