Emily Littleton has been promoted to Vice President of Corporate Communications at NPR. In this new role, Littleton will oversee NPR’s corporate messaging, internal communications, and audience, community and talent relations.

According to a release, during her more than two decades at NPR, “Littleton has taken on an array of progressively more senior communications responsibilities and brought her communications expertise to a broad range of projects across the organization, from the launch of new programs and digital platforms to major announcements and organizational strategies. Most recently as senior director, she has focused on C-level communications strategy and messaging support as well as crisis communications. Her work reaches and serves all of NPR’s internal stakeholders, including 800+ staff members and hundreds of NPR Member Station managers, as well as the general public.”

Littleton stated, “Every week millions of listeners depend on NPR’s journalists to tell them the stories that matter to their lives–to bring them the truth with humanity. That’s also how the communications team tells NPR’s story to audiences. I see this new role as a fresh opportunity to serve an organization I care deeply about, and the colleagues who have made it my work home for so many years.”

Before coming to NPR, Littleton worked at the Center for Media Education, a nonprofit that was focused on improving the quality of children’s television as well as promoting the public interest in telecommunications policymaking.
