In recent times, I’ve been listening to a lot more NPR. There are many pressing issues (health-care, elections, wars) that both the country and world are facing, and it is nice to be up-to-snuff on these talking points.
I’ve been pleasantly plagued by the unbelievable names that the anchors have. Soterios Johnson? ME-shell Norris? Giles Snyder?
While I can’t take credit for this, I will share with you how to find your own NPR Name.
1. Insert the first letter of your middle name into your first name, maintaining the order of the original letters.
2. Replace your last name (entirely) with the smallest place you’ve ever visited.
Brian Radvansky would be a bumbling amateur on-air. Briman William Creek, Domestic Correspondent, can hang with Ofeibea Quist-Arcton any day.
Post your NPR name in the comments. You’ll be broadcasting in no time. Have fun!
