News Tech: NEW YORK (AP) — Deepa Fernandes, most recently immigration correspondent and senior newsroom advisor on race and equity issues at the San Francisco Chronicle, is becoming the third host of NPR’s midday news program “Here & Now,” the public radio outlet said Friday.

Before joining the Chronicle, Fernades had extensive public radio experience and has worked in Mexico, Cuba, Ecuador and other countries in Latin America and Asia.

She will join current hosts Robin Young and Scott Tong on Oct. 10.

NPR received some attention a year ago for an exodus of minority hosts for other jobs outside the company. They included Tonya Mosley, Fernades’ predecessor at “Here & Now,” and Audie Cornish, who left for the ill-fated CNN+ streaming service, which was quickly shut down.
