As we head into the home stretch of the Spring membership drive here at KRCC, it’s time once again to peek behind the curtain of public radio’s Oz and put names with the faces of the Great Impartial Radio Gods of NPR and their celebrity doppelgangers because, well, it’s just fun. Plus it’s a perfect casting call for NPR: The Movie! starring Ed Begley, Jr. as Bob Edwards (not pictured). We also wanted to point you to this Buzzfeed post that contrasts how you THINK NPR reporters look vs. how they actually DO!
