Today NPR announced the results of their search for a new announcer.

In a few weeks you'll be hearing a new voice saying things like, "Support for NPR comes from..." and, "This is NPR."

Sabrina Farhi will join long time NPR announcer Frank Tavares, who has voiced credits for more than three decades.

Working for NPR wasn't always Farhi's dream; when she was younger she wanted to be an actress.

"All things considered, this is a dream career I never thought of as a kid," she said of her new gig.

After fewer than 21 months on the job, NPR CEO Gary Knell announced at mid-day Monday that he's leaving the organization to become president and CEO at the National Geographic Society.
