Final Note

Happy trails, J.J. Yore

Kai Ryssdal Jul 1, 2013

This final note about the production credits you hear every Friday on this program. They’re gonna be different this week. You won’t hear me say, right at the very end: J.J. Yore is the vice president and general manager.

After 25 years at Marketplace, J.J.’s leaving the company today, officially. 

He was here at the very beginning, but calling him simply a co-founder doesn’t really do it justice. He helped carve out the place this program has in your public radio day. A different kind of show, with a different kind of attitude.

You might have only heard the name once a week, but J.J. Yore was part of this broadcast every single day.
