tamara keithPrior to moving to the role in January 2014, she was a Congressional correspondent. During the 2012 Republican presidential primaries she traveled with several candidates, including Mitt Romney leading into the primaries in Colorado and Ohio.

Keith joined NPR in 2009 as a business reporter covering topics from the debt downgrade and debt ceiling crisis to the latest in policy debates, and legal issues. In 2010, she was on the ground in Haiti covering the aftermath of the country's disastrous earthquake; later she covered the Gulf oil spill. She conceived and reported the 2011 NPR series The Road Back To Work, a year-long series of audio diaries of six people in St. Louis who began the year unemployed and searching for work.

Keith has worked for NPR Member Stations KQED and KPCC in California, and WOSU in Ohio covering topics including agriculture, the environment, politics and the 2004 presidential campaign.
In 2001, Keith developed B-Side Radio, an hour-long public radio show and podcast that she co-founded, produced, hosted, edited, and distributed for nine years.

Keith has been recognized for excellence in journalism with many awards, including a 2010-2011 National Press Foundation Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellow. She earned a bachelor's degree in Philosophy from University of California, Berkeley, and a master's degree at the UCB Graduate School of Journalism. Tamara is also a member of the Bad News Babes, a media softball team that once a year competes against female members of Congress in the Congressional Women's Softball game, to raise funds and awareness for young women battling breast cancer.
