American Public Media has named Brian Newhouse host and senior producer of SymphonyCast. He will take up the post when APM takes over production and distribution of the program from NPR in January.

Newhouse is currently host, writer and producer of the national broadcasts of the Minnesota Orchestra in concert.

SymphonyCast is a two-hour weekly radio program featuring a full-length concert by a national or international orchestra. Concerts are drawn from major European and U.S. ensembles; the program is currently heard weekly on over 90 public radio stations across the country.

"We did not have to look far to find the perfect host of SymphonyCast," said Sarah Lutman, senior vice president of content for Minnesota Public Radio and APM. "Brian Newhouse is an award-winning classical music host, producer and performer. Over the years, his wonderful presentation of classical music has resonated with listeners in Minnesota and around the world. We are thrilled Brian is bringing his creative presence to SymphonyCast."

In September, APM announced that it is assuming production and distribution of Performance Today and SymphonyCast from NPR, beginning in early 2007. Broadcast production of both programs is moving from NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C., to APM, which is based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
