Madeleine Brand has left KPCC “in order to pursue other career opportunities,” the station announced today (Sept. 21). Stepping in for her on Monday is Alex Cohen, the Pasadena, Calif., station’s local anchor for All Things Considered and Marketplace.
In August, KPCC announced it was revamping The Madeleine Brand Show, which had premiered in September 2010, as Brand & Martinez, adding another hour and former ESPN newscaster A Martinez as co-host. The expansion was backed by CPB’s $1.8 million grant to the station in December 2011 for reporting and programming for and about Latinos and other minority listeners.
