Susan Stamberg co-hosted All Things Considered from 1972 until 1986 — she's the first woman to anchor a daily national news program in America. She is now an NPR special correspondent.

Fifty years ago today, 20,000 Vietnam War protesters marched on Washington, an event chronicled on the debut broadcast of NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, Susan Stamberg, one of the founding mothers of NPR and former host of "All Things Considered" shares her recollections, and we consider how WOSU Public Media figures into NPR history.

Guests:

  • Tom Rieland, general manager, WOSU Public Media
  • Bill Cohen, former WOSU reporter and longtime Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau journalist
  • Susan Stamberg, special correspondent, former "All Things Considered" host, NPR
