Carroll Coming to Shorenstein Center

Alex Jones, director of the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy confirms that former Los Angeles Times editor John Carroll (scroll down for bio) -- who left that paper amid reports of philosophical disagreements with the Tribune Co. -- will be landing in Cambridge soon.

According to Jones, the highly respected Carroll has been invited to spend a semester as a Shorenstein fellow starting in January. But there's a also a possibility he may end up with a year-long stint at the center as a Knight Visiting Lecturer, pending approval of the Knight Foundation and the Kennedy School of Government.

Ironically, Carroll almost ended up in Cambridge five years ago when he was set to succeed Bill Kovach as curator of The Nieman Foundation. But he took the L.A. Times job instead, and Harvard then tapped Bob Giles, who has proved to be a controversial choice, for the coveted post. See Sept. 16 "Don't Quote Me",
