South Windsor, CT, February 2024 – Josh Rogosin, audio engineer at National Public Radio has recorded and mixed over 800 “Tiny Desk Concerts.” Rogosin picked TELEFUNKEN’S multi-colored M80 dynamic microphones for his work at the popular video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music.

“I love microphones with personality and the colorful M80’s speak to me,” Rogosin remarks. ”I chose the colors with my gut, and it was hard to pick only five. I’ve used these excellent mics on vocals so I can easily differentiate who is on what mic when I mix.” 

 Rogosin first walked into NPR in 1999 on his way to mixing live shows at The Shakespeare Theatre in downtown D.C. Since then, he has been at the controls for all of NPR’s flagship news magazines and gathered sound in far flung places like Togo and Benin, West Africa, Cambodia and Greece. He has engineered at NPR West and NPR NY and spent two years as Technical Director at Marketplace Productions in Los Angeles. He served as Senior Broadcast Engineer for New York Public Radio and Studio 360, and was an originating producer and sound designer for NPR’s “Ask Me Another.” He graduated from the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. 

 “I love it that the Telefunken M80’s have the brightness of a condenser and are hypercardioid. It’s so important to me that mics can be placed far away enough to see a singer’s face completely, and not blocked by a microphone.”
