Starting next month, the former Hollywood Reporter deputy editorial director and Newsweek-Daily Beast director of editorial operations will be installed as managing editor of American Public Media’s Marketplace. He will be based in the downtown Los Angeles office. From today’s announcement:

“As a longtime listener of Marketplace, I’ve always admired the innovative and smart way it explores and illuminates the world of business, finance and economics,” said Miller. “To be able to join Marketplace, especially as it continues to expand its reach digitally and through live events, and to be able to work with such a talented group of journalists is incredibly exciting.”

“Mark is just the right fit for Marketplace and the direction we’re going,” said Deborah Clark, Marketplace’s vice president & executive producer. “In Mark we have a stellar, creative journalist whose experience spans digital, print and broadcast. He brings not only an extraordinary resume, but also an intuitive sense of Marketplace’s potential. I’m thrilled he’s joining our team.”

Miller, who has also worked at ABC News, the Texas Tribune and the Dallas Morning News, shared in two National magazine Awards for his reporting on Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and for helping coordinate Newsweek coverage of 9/11 and the Afghanistan war. Miller will take over from acting managing editor Dave Shaw and predecessor Sarah Gilbert.
