National Public Radio has added a fourth reporter to its White House beat. Geoff Bennett will be transferring down Pennsylvania Avenue, leaving his current role as a congressional reporter for the network since March.
Senior NPR Washington editor Beth Donovan said that “[j]ust a few months into his return to NPR, Geoff has demonstrated the substantive reach, solid sourcing, and fluidity in stories and two ways demanded daily on the beat. And, as those of us lucky enough to work alongside Geoff know, he’s done it with the grace and good humor we so need.”
Before returning to NPR on the congressional beat, Bennett had worked as Washington correspondent for NY1 News. Prior to that, he served as editor of NPR’s Weekend Edition.
NPR’s White House team also includes national political correspondent Mara Liasson and correspondents Scott Horsley and Tamara Keith.
