All Things Considered

About the show: All Things Considered

In 1977, All Things Considered expanded to seven days a week with a one-hour show on Saturdays and Sundays. NPR's Arun Rath hosts on the weekends. During each broadcast, stories and reports come to listeners from NPR reporters and correspondents based throughout the United States and the world. The hosts interview newsmakers and contribute their own reporting.

About the host: Jeff Watson

Jeff began in public radio announcing in Garden City at KANZ-KZNA as the Sunday host of All Things Considered and other shows.

Jeff came to KU in 1997. He earned a degree in film studies and a minor in English and is working on a political science degree. Hired by KPR in 2001 as a part-time announcer for ATC and classical music, Jeff took over evening classical music in fall 2004.

An enthusiast of film soundtracks, particularly American films of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Jeff enjoys his colleagues and meeting listeners. "It was a thrill for me to meet George Harter. I really enjoy A Night on the Town. It is also an enduring pleasure for me to go out in Lawrence and meet strangers who tell me that they recognize my voice from the radio."

Currently at work on a 520-page epic poem entitled "Anthony Perkins: Unsung" to be completed just as soon as he can find the right word to rhyme with Hitchcock, Jeff is a real team player.
