Bill Siemering

Siemering has done more than anyone to revive and inspire the art of sound. As the creator and first program director of National Public Radio (NPR), he conceptualized the radio shows All Things Considered, Fresh Air, and Soundprint, receiving a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 1993 for his unparalleled contributions to the evolution of public radio. After nine years as vice president and station manager at WHYY radio in Philadelphia, he is presently involved in setting up independent public radio in South Africa, Hungary, and other developing democracies worldwide.
