Frank Tavares, The Voice Of NPR For 30 Years....RIP

If you’re an NPR listener, then you knew Frank Tavares. For many years, he’s been called “The Most Heard Voice” on public radio. Listeners across the country have heard him dozens of times a day as the man who said “Support for NPR comes from NPR member stations and . . . .” Tavares was the single voice announcing the funding credits after every national news and information program from the 1980s through the fall of 2013. He has been writing his entire professional life, but only started publishing fiction a dozen years ago and his short stories have appeared in a variety of literary journals including Louisiana Literature, Connecticut Review, Story Quarterly, and The GW Review. He is also one of the founding editors and an active member of the editorial board of The Journal of Radio and Audio Media. Most recently Tavares was a professor of organizational communication at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, but he also taught radio, television, and film at California State University, Fresno.

 Tavares was recently diagnosed with ALS, and died Monday 30 DEC 2019 in Florida. NPR
