Joshua Johnson hosts “1A,” the national talk radio show produced by WAMU in Washington, DC, that succeeded “The Diane Rehm Show.” Before joining WAMU, he co-created and hosted the provocative nationwide public radio series, “Truth Be Told,” produced by KQED in San Francisco, which explored race in America. Johnson also previously taught podcasting at the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and served for over five years as morning news host for KQED. He began his career helping launch a unique partnership between Miami’s NPR station, WLRN, and The Miami Herald. Johnson is an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
