BA News Project to name editor, CEO in January
The Bay Area News Project (that joint effort between the UC-Berkeley j-school, KQED and financier F. Warren Hellman) will announce its executive editor and CEO in January, Scott Walton of KQED says. "We have outstanding candidates but I can't give you a firm date except to let you know that we are confident about being able to do this soon. I think the launch will be pushed back a little bit but 2nd quarter of 2010 is still realistic," Walton tells the Press Club in an e-mail.
