'Marketplace' editor off to Stanford

paddy-hirsch.jpgPaddy Hirsch, senior editor in Los Angeles for American Public Radio's "Marketplace" program, is heading to Stanford on a John S. Knight fellowship. Hirsch is known on "Marketplace" for his "Whiteboard" explainer stories (and blog) on complex economic concepts and topics. His project at Stanford: "Hirsch intends to create a free, universally accessible archive of explainers for media organizations and the public." He tweeted tonight: "Last day at @mktplaceradio for ten months. Kinda bittersweet."

More fellows: Evelyn Larrubia, associate editor at the L.A. Daily Journal, is also Stanford bound as we told you in May. And today, the USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Program announced that Los Angeles journalists Ryan Pearson, entertainment producer for Associated Press Television, and Alissa Walker, associate producer of KCRW’s "DnA: Design and Architecture," are among the new fellows.
