For NPR News, I am Dougslas Yelapa

A for­mu­la for deter­min­ing your NPR name:

You take your mid­dle ini­tial and insert it some­where into your first name. Then you add on the small­est for­eign town you've ever visited.

Yela­pa is a tiny vil­lage near Sayuli­ta, Mex­i­co, and the nam­ing for­mu­la was con­coct­ed by Liana Mae­by.
