3 in running to head UC Berkeley j-school

Matt Krupnick of the Contra Costa Times reports this morning that the search for the long vacant dean's position at the UC-Berkeley journalism school is down to three candidates:
    Barbara Cochran, former CBS News vp, now president of the Radio and Television News Directors Association and Foundation;

    Lincoln Caplan, former writer for The New Yorker and now co-director of a venture-philanthropy fund;

    Phil Bennett, former managing editor of The Washington Post and now an adviser with the newspaper.
There could be a fourth candidate as well. Professor Neil Henry has led the department in the interim, but has said he does not want the job permanently.
