Sacramento, Calif. – November 29, 2016: Randol White joins the Capital Public Radio newsroom as anchor of All Things Considered. He’ll report alongside host Devin Yamanaka in studio on weekday afternoons.
The Northern California native is an award-winning broadcast journalist with more than two decades of radio, television, web and print experience.
Most recently, White was the first-ever news director at KCBX Public Radio on California’s Central Coast. He built a newsroom from the ground up, based on NPR-style reporting guidelines and blended with a strong focus on the issues and topics important to his local audience. During his tenure, White won a first-place Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI) Award for his creative writing and use of sound. Earlier in his career, he anchored and reported at stations in California, Wisconsin, and Oregon.
“It’s a thrill to be able to have a sort of home-coming in this role. Northern California is home to a lot of family for me, and the issues faced here are often a bellwether for other parts of the nation,” states White.
“Randol’s leadership in the newsroom and enthusiasm for storytelling add value to our team and to our coverage,” said Linnea Edmeier, CapRadio’s Managing Editor for News. “I’m thrilled to have Randol on our afternoon news team.”
