Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR

by Lisa Napoli Author

The success of a pioneering nonprofit founded in the 1970s and called National Public Radio (NPR) can be attributed, in no small part, to a group of pioneers: women journalists who fought sexism in an industry rife with that special kind of 20th-century backwater male chauvism. Meet Susan Stamberg, Linda Wertheimer, Nina Totenburg, and Cokie Roberts. Journalist and author Lisa Napoli’s captivating biography about these four remarkable women showcases their radically different life stories, their deep and enduring friendships with each other, and their extraordinary moxie. Based on extensive interviews and calling on the author’s deep connections in news and public radio, Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie is an homage to women who blazed trails to become cultural icons while they covered decades of American news.
