Producer DEBORAH CLARK. "SITARA will play an important role as we continue to produce innovative news and economic programming that our listeners expect. I'm confident that she will be a real partner in helping us take MARKETPLACE to the next level."

"I'm thrilled to work with host KAI RYSSDAL and the rest of the MARKETPLACE team to innovate, respond quickly to breaking news, and become even more ambitious in how we tell stories on the radio and across the show's digital platforms. It's a producer's dream to work on a show that's both incredibly strong and committed to continue experimenting and innovating."
