Jacob Margolis Associate Producer, Take Two
Jacob Margolis is an Associate Producer on KPCC's "Take Two."
Jacob started his journalism career while still in high school, working as a photographer for the Malibu Times, and as a part-time producer on the mid-day news at KPFK in Los Angeles.
He then took off to the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he majored in Comparative Politics. He also interned at the local newspaper - The Santa Cruz Sentinel - and ran the news department and hosted a regular show on the public radio station KZSC.
While finishing up his final year of college, he came back down to LA to work on and help launch "The Madeleine Brand Show" at KPCC.
After a year in Pasadena, he moved to Washington, D.C. to intern on "All Things Considered" at National Public Radio, only to return to KPCC after also working as a temp on the weekend NPR shows.
Jacob assumed the role of Associate Producer on "The Madeleine Brand Show," and eventually continued on to "Take Two," where he's responsible for producing regular segments on news, music, business, tech and food. You can also hear him on the air every other week on his segment "App Chat."
And when he's not cutting pieces, writing scripts or booking guests, he can be found braving the harsh Southern California winters while racing his cyclocross bike.
