NPR West losing reporter to Mexico City

carrie-kahn-npr.jpgCarrie Kahn, who has been based at NPR West in Culver City since 2004, is shifting to Mexico City to be NPR’s correspondent covering Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. "During her career Kahn has often reported on and from Mexico, most recently covering the country’s presidential election earlier this summer," the network says. "She was the first NPR reporter into Haiti after the devastating earthquake in early 2010, and has returned to the country six times in the two years since to detail recovery and relief efforts, and the political climate."

Also announced: Sean Carberry, who has produced and reported out of NPR’s Kabul bureau, will become the permanent correspondent in Afghanistan. He most recently has been a producer on the International Desk, NPR says.
