A look inside Marketplace

Richard Core Oct 21, 2008

If you’re a loyal listener to Marketplace (you are a loyal listener, aren’t you?), you may appreciate the Los Angeles Times’ story on what’s going on in our offices these days. It focuses a bit on us being just a little irreverent in our approach. . . . Us? Irreverent? Nah!

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
