Before joining Slate and "Day to Day," Bowers was an NPR correspondent. Among the subjects he covered were the White House and Congress, the presidential campaigns of 1992 and 2000 (including the Florida recount), the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and most recently, California and the West. In the mid-1990s, Bowers served as NPR's London bureau chief. During his tenure, he reported on politics and conflict throughout Europe, including several years covering the wars in Bosnia, Croatia, and Kosovo. He also served as chief of NPR's Moscow bureau and covered stories across the former Soviet Union. Bowers began his career in public radio during college in 1984 as an intern for NPR's "All Things Considered." He then held several production jobs at NPR, including serving as the original director of "Weekend Edition Sunday" when it debuted in 1987. His first reporting job was at WBUR-FM in Boston. Bowers won the 1992 National Sigma Delta Chi Award for Radio Feature Reporting from the Society of Professional Journalists, and was a co-recipient of NPR's Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for political reporting in 1994-95. Bowers holds a bachelor's degree from Yale University.
