Who’s got the hottest staff in public radio? Without taking the time to dig into our archives (day job), we suspect the most BONPRed show is Marketplace and the most BONPRed station is NPR West. Rest-of-America, are you going to let California take this top honor without a fight? Nominate your favorite staff here or email babesofnpr[at]gmail.com and we’ll put it to a vote. This is why...
We know, we know. You’re sick of thinking about who’s going to wear the pants in this country come November. We recommend you press mute, put on some tunes, and watch Ari Shapiro wear the hell out of that suit. HOT!
Anonymous asked: I can't believe that you're up to 16 pages and haven't yet featured Madeleine Brand (formerly of the poor, dead NPR's Day To Day) and host of The Madeleine Brand Show on KPCC. You're welcome! (info and pic on KPCC/SCPR's website - I'd put a link in, but it won't let me)
We just received the following submission: “Despite his book, which we are all tired of him promoting, The Moth host Dan Kennedy can rock the black frames and clothing.” [Ed. note: You mean Rock On: An Office Power Ballad? We haven’t read it but we framed the back jacket and put it on our wall of babes. HOT!]
Call for Nominations
Good morning, BONPR lovers! During a hugely productive weekend spent mostly in advanced yoga poses and/or cleaning, we somehow managed to lose the scraps of paper our babe queue was recorded on. DISASTER! We need your help, BONPR lovers: submit your favorite babes through Tumblr or babesofnpr[at]gmail.com. NOTE: a little personal information makes the caption-writing process far more efficient....
We’re currently on tour on the west coast (“tour” being a roadtrip funded by Kickstarter) and we foolishly brought the iPad our fans paid for instead of the laptop our fans paid for. We can’t figure out how to copy images on this thing so we’re taking it as a sign that BONPR needs a vacation. We’ll be back next week with more babes on the radio. HOT!
