Fellow for Leadership Summit: The Future of Local News and Public Media

Jason Kandel is the managing editor for online at Southern California Public Radio's kpcc.org, and is responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the Web site, helping set new media strategies, and coordinating news-gathering projects between radio and online. Before that, he was the online editor at the award-winning Web site of the Los Angeles Daily News, where he reported breaking news, directed breaking news coverage, wrote enterprise stories for online and print, posted blog entries to the crime blog Mean Streets, and shot and edited video. His first newspaper job was in Long Beach, Calif., where he worked as a clerk and staff writer at the Long Beach Press-Telegram before becoming a correspondent at the Los Angeles Times in Orange County and then taking a job at the Daily News where he has specialized in crime and the Los Angeles Police Department. His work covering Eastern European organized crime caught the attention of the U.S. State Department who recruited him as part of a U.S. Speakers and Specialists grant program to talk to journalists in Albania and Colombia about how he covers crime in the United States. Kandel graduated with a degree in communications from Cal State Fullerton.
