Steve Inskeep is co-host of Morning Edition, the most widely heard radio news program in the United States.
Inskeep has traveled across the nation and around the world for NPR News, interviewing presidents, warlords, authors, and musicians, as well as those who aren't in the headlines -- from a steelworker in Ohio to a woman living in poverty in Tehran.
In 2002 he first visited Karachi, Pakistan - the subject of his first book, "Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi." In the years since, his regular dispatches from visits to Pakistan have included an acclaimed radio series, "Along the Grand Trunk Road," reported with his NPR colleagues.
Inskeep covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2003, he received a National Headliner Award for investigating a military raid that went wrong in Afghanistan, and he has twice been part of the NPR News team that was awarded an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton for its coverage of Iraq. He also shared a duPont award, with his colleague Michele Norris, for a groundbreaking series of talks about race during the 2008 Presidential campaign.
A native of Carmel, Indiana, Inskeep is a 1990 graduate of Morehead State University in Kentucky.
