Robert Krulwich

Host, WNYC's Radiolab

Robert Krulwich specializes in making complicated news about anything -- science, economics, politics -- easy to grasp through visual and dramatic analogies. After getting his start reporting on Watergate for the Pacifica network, Robert became an NPR correspondent. From 1978 -1985, if you were listening to NPR, you heard all about business and economics from Robert Krulwich. After that he moved to television, working for CBS, ABC and the PBS programs Frontline and NOVA. He is currently the host of NOVA’s ScienceNOW. Radio Lab marks his return to public radio.
