Weekend Edition and All Things Considered

Audie Cornish Person of Interest Audie Cornish Boston Magazine

On September 4, 2011, Cornish replaced Liane Hansen on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. Hansen had served as host of the show for more than twenty years.

At the end of the December 18, 2011, broadcast of Weekend Edition, Cornish announced that she would be leaving the program in January 2012 to co-host All Things Considered during the 2012 election year, to be replaced on January 8 by Rachel Martin. It was subsequently reported that the change was due to Michele Norris's decision to step down from All Things Considered during the 2012 election year because her husband had taken a position in the Obama re-election campaign. On January 3, 2013, it was announced that Cornish would remain the host of the show and that Norris would instead return as a special correspondent.
