My Boston Phoenix colleague Adam Reilly has the scoop on how Mark Degon, longtime news director at WRNI, is heading to Boston's WBUR. No word yet on who will replace him.
Meanwhile, Megan Hall, who's done some freelancing for the Providence Phoenix, has been hired as a health-care reporter at WRNI. Kudos and congrats to her. This continues an upswing at Rhode Island's public radio station, as described in a Q&A I did last year with GM Joe O'Connor.
