JJ Yore - 

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. 

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
