Host, All Things Considered
Kate Davidson is host of "All Things Considered" at Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Before moving to Oregon, she was a regular contributor to" Marketplace," a reporter at Michigan Radio and a producer at NPR in Washington, D.C., her hometown.
Kate has a degree in English from Yale University and a master's degree from the University of California-Berkeley and Columbia University, where she was a Knight-Bagehot Fellow.
Her favorite radio project was an early one: a documentary about the experiences of Navajo children who grew up in white Mormon foster families across the West. That project aired on NPR and won the national Edward R. Murrow award for network documentary. More importantly, though, it cemented her love for radio and deep listening.
