The National Public Radio (NPR) has another talent leaving the radio station. NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik revealed that Tonya Mosley would be departing from her hosting duties at NPR later this month.

Mosley’s contract expires in August, and so for the remaining months, the “Here & Now” host will shift to a special correspondent for the radio station. 

“I have been honored over the past two years to be part of the biggest stories of our time at Here & Now,” Mosley says. “As individual journalists and as institutions, we need to be thinking about what are the ways we serve the audience that may be different than the way we do now.”

“This is a moment where we need to have deep reflection on who we are and what value we have to the people. Maintaining the status quo is not the way to do it.”

NPR has recently seen an exodus of high-profile journalists of color leaving the company as Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, Joshua Johnson, Noel King, Audie Cornish have all moved on to other roles at different news outlets.

Radio host Glenn Beck finds himself in another battle with Covid-19, with the first bout with the virus coming in December of 2020. However, this go-around with the virus might be a bit more severe as Beck shared during his appearance on Mark Levin’s daily radio program

Beck stated that the virus had progressed into his lungs during his appearance on Levin’s show but remained in good spirits. 

“I am great, Mark. I am great, Mark,” Beck said. “Despite having COVID and seeing the destruction of our country.” 

“Do you have COVID right now?” Levin asked.

“Ya, I do. It’s [COVID-19] starting to go into my lungs today and a little disturbing. I’m on all the medications and treatments and everything else, so It’s all good,” Beck said.

Levin asked what type of medication Beck is taking to combat the virus, adding if he had started taking a monoclonal antibody cocktail, which has shown to be somewhat effective on persistent COVID-19 cases.

“No, the monoclonal doesn’t seem to be working for the new strain,” Beck responded. “I have had it for about a week. I’m not going downhill. I mean, I think I’m feeling better. It’s just getting into my lungs… you will want to avoid that.”

Despite sharing his health status, Beck again reiterated that he feels fine but is tired of dealing with COVID. 

“Mark, I am not concerned about it. I’m really not,” Beck said. “I just am so done with this whole COVID thing. I know it is real. I am a fatty-fat-fatso, so that is probably not the best thing, and I got some other issues.”
