Sitara Nieves is the interim executive producer for Marketplace. Previously, she served as the senior producer for Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal.
Before Sitara joined the Marketplace team in 2012, she worked on The Takeaway, a co-production of WNYC and Public Radio International that she helped launch in 2008. She’s also taught audio storytelling at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, contributed to The Economist as a multimedia journalist, and freelanced as a reporter for a number of radio, digital and print outlets.
Sitara is learning to love her new home in Los Angeles, even though it’s still jarring that there are no proper seasons here.Twitter: sitaranieves
