Darby C. Maloney is the Arts & Entertainment Editor for Southern California Public Radio.
She has a background covering the entertainment industry as producer of KCRW’s "The Business" and the "Hollywood Breakdown." Darby is part of a team that will expand KPCC’s coverage of the arts, entertainment, and creativity with a new as-yet unnamed daily show.
While at KCRW Darby launched "The Spin-off," a monthly podcast about television, contributed to other culture shows such as "Unfictional," and her work on "The Business" earned numerous awards including two Gracies, a Golden Mike, and a National Entertainment Journalism Award.
In 2006-2007 she was a contributing producer to the "This American Life" television series on Showtime. In the episode "Growth Spurt," she produced the story "Lights, Camera, Traction" about a group of people at the Burbank Senior Artists Colony who made a short film and in the process discovered what it means to be young. From 2008-2010 she helped launch and produce the web-series "The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers" with NOVA and WGBH. The series was nominated for a Webby and won a Streamy in that time.
Prior to her career in producing, Darby was a psychotherapist who was trained in psychoanalysis. She has a BA in English from Northwestern University and a Masters in Social Work from Boston University.
