National Public Radio Inc's (NPR) "Morning Edition" host Bob Edwards, one of the defining and most recognized voices in public broadcasting, will step down from the show after 25 years, largely at the behest of the radio net. Edwards will serve in the capacity of NPR senior correspondent once Edwards ankles his hosting duties April 30, 2004. Edwards has been the only host of "Morning Edition" since the show's launch in 1979. As NPR evolves into a more mainstream news source, it is bringing new voices to the fore.
