Pamela McCall named local host of “All Things Considered”

After nearly two years of delighting listeners from the “Morning Edition” seat at KUER, Pamela McCall is moving to the afternoon as the local host of “All Things Considered” on Oct. 3. KUER’s Bob Nelson will fill in for McCall on “Morning Edition” until the position is filled.

“Pamela is an essential part of KUER’s on-air presence, no matter when she’s on,” said Elaine Clark, KUER’s news director. “I’m always impressed by the rapport she establishes with her guests and the smart pivots she uses to get the most out of the conversation. And while as a listener I’ll miss her warmth as part of my morning routine, I look forward to hearing more of her fantastic work in the afternoon.”

In her role as a journalist, McCall has interviewed Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Donald Trump, Jane Goodall, Dolly Parton and many other notable figures. She has covered global sporting events including the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Games and two other Olympics for NBC Radio, the World Snowboarding Championships, the Wimbledon Tennis Championship and the US Open Tennis Championship. 

McCall also hosted a live two-hour radio call-in show in Victoria, British Columbia, anchored CBC newscasts in British Columbia, managed a seven-member staff and produced a two-hour daily live news magazine program. She is the recipient of a Gracie Allen Award, several Edward R. Murrow Awards and has been honored by Utah’s Society of Professional Journalists.
