While men NPR journalists quoted men 80% of the time and women 20% of the time, women NPR journalists quoted men 52% of the time and women 48% of the time. This is a dramatic difference, and suggests that NPR women journalists are doing their part in trying to change the culture of sourcing in new stories. Interestingly, NPR women journalists stand out in this regard as compared to their counterparts in print or broadcast.

I listen to NPR every day and hadn’t picked up on this. Wow. Props to NPR women for trying to change the culture.
