Yesterday, a colleague sent me a link to a California-based artist's blog post called "How the NPR Voices Look (In My Head)." In the post, he gives us his sketch interpretation of famed NPR personalities, including three WBEZ personalities: Ira Glass, Peter Sagal and Torey
and part 2:
The artist's name is Gaelan Kelly and like several other listeners, only knows the NPR hosts and reporters by voice. It's a phenomenon in public radio, since most of the personalities aren't household names or crossover media. So unless their picture is taken, they are anonymous, only visualized by voice. Now that's changed in the new media age. Twitter, Facebook and station bios regularly publish host mugshots alongside content.
