NPR's Noel King knows what it's like to be behind the microphone on big, complicated stories — and controversial ones, too.
King is a host of NPR's Morning Edition program and Up First podcast. She's also a correspondent for Planet Money. Before joining NPR, she was a senior reporter at Marketplace.
During her career, King has covered everything from gentrification in Los Angeles to the conflict in Darfur. Her interview with a white nationalist last August sparked widespread controversy.
King joined MPR's Angela Davis on stage at the University of St. Thomas to talk about all these things as part of MPR's Broadcast Journalist Series.
