NPR's Susan Feeney to GMMB

As I was listening to NPR's All Things Considered last Friday, I heard the news that one of NPR's veteranSusan Feeney photo (Nov 2009)  editors, Susan Feeney, was leaving. I was wondering where Susan was going and then lo and behold - a press release landed in my inbox this morning. Susan will be joining GMMB as a senior counselor. She will be concentrating on social advocacy campaigns. 


Susan's a well-known figure in Washington journalism circles - spending nine years at NPR and before that, time with The Dallas Morning News and The Times-Picayune. But, her work is not limited to journalism - she founded The Friends of the Times-Picayune, a national non-profit emergency relief fund for families of the newspaper's staff displaced by Hurricane Katrina. She built awareness and various coalitions to raise nearly $400,000, helping nearly 200 families. (PF Tipster)
