Brady Carlson

Brady Carlson hosts “All Things Considered” on WPR, bringing the latest Wisconsin news to listeners every weekday afternoon.

Carlson joined WPR in September 2016 after more than a decade at New Hampshire Public Radio, where he covered three presidential primary campaigns up close. His political reporting was featured on a number of NPR programs, and he helped develop the station’s weekly “Foodstuffs” segment on food and food culture. He and his colleagues won a national Edward R. Murrow Award in 2016 for their news series, “The First Decade: Early Childhood Disparities and the Future of New Hampshire’s Kids.”

Brady has won national attention in the public radio system for his innovative efforts to engage with listeners online and include their ideas and perspectives on the air, through a number of social media platforms and as an early adopter of Minnesota Public Radio’s Public Insight Journalism system.

His first book, “Dead Presidents,” a tour of the gravesites of the U.S. presidents, was published by W.W. Norton & Company in February 2016.

Brady holds a master’s degree from Emerson College in Boston and a bachelor’s degree from Benedictine University in Illinois.

He lives in Madison with his wife and three children.
