Amanda Rabinowitz - Best Anchor

by WKSU's AMANDA RABINOWITZ


Morning Edition Host
Amanda Rabinowitz
 

As host for WKSU’s weekday broadcasts of NPR’s “Morning Edition,” Amanda Rabinowitz wakes up thousands of listeners every day. An excellent reporter as well, her first job each day is to get people on their way with the latest regional news, sports and weather. She produces the show each morning with help from a Kent State University intern, arriving at 4 a.m. for her 5 a.m. start time. Together they mix pre-produced reports from the WKSU newsroom into NPR’s daily line-up, expertly blending the content and timing the end result. Making sure breaks are in the correct place often means finding shorter news items to insert and understanding what is most interesting to the audience.

Amanda’s bright morning attitude and professionalism on-air makes it easy to listen longer, allowing WKSU to connect more news and information with the Northeast Ohio community. Her interviews with local sports writer Terry Pluto on the fates of the Browns, Indians and Cavs as well as college teams has become a weekly favorite. She is an insightful reporter who uses her skill as a journalist to be an active host during four hours of morning news each Monday through Friday.

A Sonorous and serious, mature voice, an experienced sound, professional but pleasant and at the same time fitting the subjects ... this is network quality, the likes of which I have not heard in years. Very, Very Good!
