Former LA Times editor hired as VP at public radio 

Former Los Angeles Times editor Russ Stanton who led the newspaper to three Pulitzer Prizes has been hired by Southern California Public Radio.

Radio station KPCC announced the hire Tuesday, saying Stanton will be tasked with improving the quality and reach of the station's report as vice president of content.

In a statement, Stanton says he's excited to be joining the staff of his favorite radio station, which he called a shining example of quality journalism.

Stanton was editor and executive editor at the Times for four years until December, when he announced a sudden departure amid financial tumult at parent company Tribune Co.

Stanton oversaw the award-winning staff at a time when the paper faced declining circulation and the newsroom staff was slashed from 900 to 550 journalists.
