Newscaster Carl Kasell leaving "Morning Edition"

East Lansing, MI –

After 34 years at NPR, including 30 years as the newscaster on "Morning Edition", Carl Kasell is leaving the program next week.

Kasell plans to stay busy, and you'll still hear him on the air.

But don't make the mistake WKAR's Scott Pohl did in a recent interview, and use the word "retirement".
