NPR Turns 50

The sound of National Public Radio means many different things to its 60 million weekly followers. There's in-depth news coverage with "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered" and "Weekend Edition." Music's biggest stars come to NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C., to play for staff members (and millions of fans) at "Tiny Desk Concerts." And there's even a weekly quiz show, "Wait, Wait … Don't Tell Me!," where CBS "Sunday Morning" correspondent Faith Salie has been a panelist for a dozen years.

It all began fifty years ago...

Salie asked her, "What do you think it will take for NPR to have another 50 years?"

"I don't know what the future of radio programs, per se, will be," Stamberg replied. "It may not be that long. But people will always listen and want to hear stories told by human voices."
