L.A. Public Media Service hires up

The new "radio and multimedia service directed to an ethnically diverse and underserved 25-40 year-old demographic" — funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and managed by Radio Bilingüe — has picked up Oscar Garza as senior assignment editor. He was previously senior editor at the Daily News, editor of the late Tu Ciudad magazine and an editor on the arts and features side at the Los Angeles Times. The Los Angeles Public Media Service — which plans to initially "target the fastest-growing population group in the region, Latinos" — previously named Nicole A. Childers as chief content officer.
