Rehm Plans Retirement


WAMU-LogoWAMU Washington executives now get to decide how to handle a succession plan for one of public radio’s longest-serving hosts.

Diane Rehm is discussing retirement after the presidential election in November 2016 with station executives, reports the Washington Post.

By then the host, now 79, will have been on the air nearly 40 years.

The talk show which originates on WAMU(FM) and is syndicated by NPR, features interviews local and national guests. The station has used several guest hosts when Rehm has been out due to medical issues in recent years.
