In January 2009, NPR laid off Chadwick. He was one of 67 employees terminated after a budget shortfall attributed to a drop in corporate underwriting in the wake of the economic crisis of 2008.[2]

Chadwick continues to do a video blog for Slate V called "Interviews, 50 cents."[3]

Chadwick received the Sigma Delta Chi Award for investigative journalism and two Lowell Thomas Awards from the Overseas Press Club for foreign reporting, and was part of the CBS News team that produced the Emmy Award- and Peabody Award-winning documentary In the Killing Fields of America.

Chadwick was married to Radio Expeditions executive producer Carolyn Jensen, who died in 2010.
