NPR announced Wednesday that Cornish will join the weekday show for one year beginning in January. Norris recently stepped down because her husband has joined President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign as a senior adviser.
Cornish was named host of “Weekend Edition Sunday” this year. Previously she covered Capitol Hill and the 2008 presidential campaign.
NPR says it will search for a new host to take over the weekend show for 2012 until Cornish returns.
Cornish will co-host “All Things Considered” with Melissa Block and Robert Siegel.
