Daily Review reporter Martin Ricard announced today that he will be leaving his post covering San Leandro as of August 8, 2008. In his announcement, Ricard said he's leaving not because of "any lack of commitment to my journalism career or to my beat," but because he will be attending UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism in a few weeks.
Prior to his reporting job at the Daily Review, Ricard was a Diversity Institute Fellow at The The Tennessean. In June 2007, Ricard was awarded first prize in news analysis with fellow reporter Matt O'Brien at the 30th annual Peninsula Press Club Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards. Ricard covered San Leandro for the past two years and had recently begun adding video to some of his articles.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at August 5, 2008 3:57 PM | TrackBack
