Sorry about the Stamberg typo. Yes, I was thinking of Nina. When they had Nina, Cokey and Linda all covering their specialty areas of the Federal government NPR was at an all-time peak for me. They still have very good coverage, but I like these three the best.
Nina covered the supreme court during the Gore v. Bush hearings also, and it was interesting to hear the listener remarks that came in afterward. When presented with the printed text, some readers (myself included) still heard Totenberg's clear and measured speech when reading the transcripts. When presented with the hearings themselves, I had to chuckle at the realization that justices don't all sound like her.
