Spot.us, the non-profit journalistic website run by David Cohn, has just launched two new complimentary projects in Los Angeles, funded by the California Endowment. The first, called the LA Vitamin Report, is an 8-part multimedia series devoted to “quality-of-life” issues in Los Angeles. Alex Schmidt will be the project manager. Schmidt is a radio veteran who has worked as a staff reporter at WHYY, a web producer at The New Yorker, a producer at Marketplace, and a web producer at 20th TV Fox.
Spot.us is also launching a complementary blog called The Daily Vitamin, which will cover the same terrain as the multimedia effort. Yours truly, Matthew Fleischer, has been named the blog editor. I’ll be posting a few times a week on issues ranging from land use to public health. I might even throw some flaneuring in there for nostalgia sake.
