Philanthropist Eli Broad has donated billions of dollars over the years, and a nice chunk of it has gone to public education.

Now 80 years old, Broad says its time to groom a replacement to run his foundation and he's hired a high profile operative from Washington, D.C., to do the job.

KPCC's Adolfo Guzman-Lopez has the story.
