NPR's Melissa Block is nearly done considering "All Things"

After 12 years at the helm of All Things Considered, NPR’s Melissa Block will step down on Aug. 14 as co-host of the program. Block isn't leaving NPR, though--just moving into a new role of special correspondent.

"This news: I'll be stepping aside as @npratc host to be special corresp. for @nprnews. It's been an amazing 12 years," she tweets, later adding, "I've been considering many things for 12 years. Look forward to considering many more in my new gig w/@nprnews."

"Congrats to the great @NPRmelissablock, who makes smart sound fun night after night," reacts Boston Globe's Scott Helman.

David Gura with Bloomberg TV chimes in, "As a longtime admirer of @NPRmelissablock's reporting, I can't wait to hear more of it."
