Throughout the fall fundraiser, you'll hear us highlighting the fact that while other news outlets have been cutting costs and cutting staff, we've hired more than two dozen journalists in the last year so we can do a better job covering news in Southern California. Some of these are people you hear on the radio; some are shy types working behind the scenes.
All them them are dedicated to their jobs, but many of them have surprising secret lives. Listen to find out which reporter has pet jellyfish, which host sings Raspberry Beret on Karaoke night, and which staffer admits to liking the band Coldplay.
And then please give generously to support them!
