List Rules Reporters, hosts, or correspondents heard on NPR. Upvote the craziest names.
Do these reporters and NPR contributors have faces for radio? No! But they certainly have names you can't forget! That is, if you can actually pronounce them correctly. Whether these names are tongue twisters, allertation-tastic or just plain mouth fulls, you have to wonder why so many people working for National Public Radio have names that would give Engelbert Humperdinck a run for his money. Pretty soon, Rumpelstiltskin will be reporting the latest goings-on in the middle east.
It's a good thing the news and storytelling shows on NPR are so amazing, because if the names of the reporters were any indication to how much listeners will tune in for their news and other content, I'd be worried! But these journalists' names are unique and therefore pretty great and interesting, just like the stories they share with the world as NPR hosts.
