Robert Krulwich

A correspondent for National Public Radio, award-winning producer Robert Krulwich regularly appears on Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

He is co-host of RadioLab, a nationally distributed radio series that explores new developments in science for people who are curious but not usually drawn to science shows. No stranger to TV, Krulwich contributes to ABC's Nightline, World News Tonight and World News Now. His talent for on-air teaching is often called upon to make complicated subjects comprehensible. Over the years, he's used ballet companies, puppets, and animals (live and stuffed) to help illustrate hard-to-understand concepts in finance, biology, and economics.
