Frank Tavares, Fiction Writer/"Voice Of NPR"
Frank Tavares is a professor of communication and a fiction writer, but you probably know him best as the "voice of NPR."
Until very recently, all the announcements that began "funding for NPR…" were delivered in the sonorous tones of Mr. Tavares.
A lot is happening in his life. Not only does NPR have a new underwriter voice, but Frank Tavares just released a book collecting some of his short stories, "The Man Who Built Boxes."
He joins us to talk about all of his jobs.
