NPR is saying goodbye to “Tell Me More” on August 1. According to NPR, it’s the third for programs targeting African-Americans and other people of color. From NPR:
Michel Martin, the host of Tell Me More, will remain at the network, as will the program’s executive editor, Carline Watson. They will be part of an initiative to incorporate the kind of coverage of issues of race, identity, faith, gender and family that appear on the show. Martin will appear on the network’s primary news magazines, online and in public events.
Additionally, NPR maintains two related but separate efforts: the Race Card Project, a multi-platform effort created by host and special correspondent Michele Norris, and Code Switch, a digital vertical that looks at how an increasingly multi-ethnic America understands itself. Lynette Clemetson will oversee all three groups and will hire a handful of other reporters; those who have lost their jobs will be able to reapply for those jobs.
