Amy Eddings

Host/Producer

Amy Eddings is Host/Producer of NPR’s “Morning Edition” on Ideastream Public Media.

Before joining Ideastream in 2017, Amy was heard in the afternoons in New York City as host of NPR’s “All Things Considered” on WNYC, NPR’s largest affiliate. She spent seven years prior to her hosting duties reporting for WNYC, with a special focus on garbage and recycling. Amy also served as News and Public Affairs Director at WFUV in New York from 1994 to 1998. She began her radio career at the legendary pacifist community radio station, WBAI, which is also in New York. Amy has also been a columnist and lifestyle reporter for The Lima News in Lima, Ohio; an Off-Off-Broadway critic for the now-defunct weekly LGBTQ paper, New York Native; and a writer of devotionals and articles for the faith-based publishing company Guideposts.

Amy is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Best Anchor, Local Radio Gracie Award in 2020 from the Alliance for Women in Media and Best Radio Anchor in 2019 from the Ohio chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists. Amy, along with her colleague, Andrea Bernstein, received several awards in 2003 for their series on homeless housing, “Handshake Hotels.” Those awards include the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Chi Delta Award for investigative reporting, the Investigative Reporters and Editors prize for radio, and The Newspaper Guild’s Heywood Broun Award, which acknowledges journalism that helps right a wrong or correct an injustice. Her work and family series, “The Juggling Act,” won a bronze medal at the 1998 International Radio Festival.

Amy was born and raised in Brunswick, Ohio. She is a proud alumnus of The Ohio State University. She received a Master of Arts in Performance Studies from New York University.

Amy lives in Fairview Park with her cat, Tidbit.
