Arun Rath


Arun Rath has worked and produced for a variety of programs for (W)GBH for more than 20 years, in a career that has spanned public radio and television and national work for NPR and PBS. Rath currently hosts the local broadcast of GBH’s All Things Considered, and was named “Best Radio Personality in Boston” for his work hosting “In It Together,” a radio show and podcast that broadcast nightly during the height of the pandemic.

Arun began his journalism career as an intern with NPR’s Talk of the Nation, eventually joining the staff and becoming the show's director after working for a variety of NPR News programs and desks during the 1990s. In 2000, he was tasked as senior producer with re-booting On the Media, which ultimately tripled its audience and won a Peabody Award. After a year as senior editor for the culture and arts show Studio 360, Arun moved to television in 2005 to report and produce documentaries, and manage radio partnerships for GBH’s Frontline, while continuing to report on culture and music for the PBS series Sound Tracks. At Frontline and The World, Rath specialized in national security and military justice. He reported and produced five films for Frontline, including an Emmy-nominated investigation of the Haditha incident in Iraq. Rath also covered the Manning court martial, and has made numerous trips to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to cover the military commission prosecuting 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. From 2013 to 2015 Rath was the weekend host of NPR’s All Things Considered. His most recent Frontline documentary, Out of Gitmo, followed a recently released detainee and the history of Guantanamo Bay’s use as a detention site prior to 9/11.
