All Things Considered

Sponsor All Things Considered

As NPR’s original flagship newsmagazine, All Things Considered brings audiences the biggest stories, thoughtful commentaries, and insightful features on the quirky and the mainstream in arts and life, music and entertainment —all brought alive through sound. All Things Considered sponsorship is available for the two-hour weekday show, hosted by Robert Siegel, Audie Cornish, Kelly McEvers and Ari Shapiro.

Since its debut in 1971, this afternoon radio newsmagazine has delivered in-depth reporting and transformed the way listeners understand current events and view the world. The newsmagazine has won major awards, including the Peabody and Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.

Michel Martin hosts Weekend All Things Considered, an hour-long newsmagazine airing on Saturday and Sunday evenings. The show keeps listeners informed of breaking news and business updates all weekend long, by intelligently combining hard news and cultural commentary from across America and around the world.

Special Series: Sponsorship Opportunity

In Fall 2017, All Things Considered will bring audiences stories of resilience and inspiration in the face of adversity through the series “Been There” from NPR’s innovation incubator, the Story Lab.

From the struggle to find success in business and single parenthood by choice, to grappling with defeat in sport and engineering, listeners will hear one-on-one conversations that will surprise, educate and empower. “Been There,” a popular weekly series connecting people on either side of a life-changing experience, returns to All Things Considered with six new pieces.

Special series sponsorship includes cross-platform opportunities, such as on air and digital opportunities, as well as live event activation in collaboration with NPR’s Generation Listen.
