"It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s."
— Lupita Nyong’o, accepting her Oscar
Congrats again to the stunning Lupita Nyong’o on her Oscar win!
Nprcodeswitch gets this right.
Howdy. I’m Mel, NPR’s newest employee. I used to work at Fresh Air (where I ran the Tumblr, among other things) and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me (where I wrote jokes, among other things.)
Today is my second day of work at NPR. I’m here to think about the network’s digital and social strategy — and write a bit here and there. I’m going to start with the NPR Music folks and the team at Morning Edition.
If you want to reach me, I’m @mkramer on Twitter and melodykramer on Instagram and around the Internet in various iterations. Feel free to reach out or say hello. I’ll likely be on here from time to time to fill you in, but I’m happy to talk in any of those ways, too.
Welcome! The pic is precious.
