Former LA Times Editor Russ Stanton Lands at KPCC

Just one month after stepping down as editor of the Los Angeles Times, Russ Stanton has a new gig. He’s joining public radio station KPCC as vice president of content.

From the KPCC announcement:

The hiring is part of an aggressive effort by the nonprofit news organization to become the preeminent regional source for both broadcast and online news — with deeper, more enterprising and investigative coverage.

One of his first job duties is to hire an executive editor for the newsroom. Hiring instead of firing. That must be a nice change of pace for Stanton.
