The National Association of Black Journalists reminds NPR CEO Vivian Schiller (left) that the radio network "benefits from listener support, corporate donations and tax dollars from the Corporation of Public Broadcasting and should reflect the diversity of the community you serve. The minority population of the United States is approximately 32 percent." Schiller responds: "I couldn't agree more that NPR must increase the diversity of its staff -- particularly in management and editorial." || Schiller's letter to NABJ || NPR staff composition
