NPR announced several changes to its National Desk via internal memo this morning. The first is the addition of Sam Sanders as an Assistant Producer on the National Desk. Sanders, who has been reporting for the Washington Post since last year, will start his new gig on July 5th. Additionally, Senior Business Editor Marilyn Geewax has been named National Economics Correspondent. She will write primarily for npr.org but plans to continue contributing to NPR’s radio coverage. Congrats to Marilyn and Sam!
