NPR West's chief lands at USC

Cinny Kennard, Managing Director/Managing Editor of National Public Radio’s West Coast production center in Culver City, found a good exit gig. She's going to USC Annenberg as senior fellow at the Center on Communication Leadership and Policy, where she will lead a project on women in communication leadership. Kennard will contribute to the school's Communication Leadership & Policy blog and "participate in other public programs," according to the USC release. This is the final week for "Day to Day," the signature program based at NPR West, which got the word in December that it would scale way back.
