Associate Editor, LAist
Lisa Brenner is the associate editor for LAist at KPCC.
Lisa joined KPCC in December 2011. Prior to that she led content direction as co-editor of LAist, many moons before KPCC bought it.
Lisa has written and produced arts, culture and news content for print and online publications, including MTV, Glamour and LA.com, where she previously served as Music Editor and Managing Editor of the entertainment and lifestyle website.
She worked on the 20th Century Fox studio lot in creative licensing for Fox Music publishing, where she co-created the department's first online store and mined the musical catalogue of film scores, TV themes and soundtracks.

Lisa earned a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University in Media Studies with an emphasis in film and television. Her dad says she majored in watching TV. He's not wrong.
