American Public Media hires from NPR for podcast editor

American Public Media has made a new hire for its podcast efforts. Phyllis Fletcher will join the company on March 11 as a podcast editor. She is currently at the Northwest Bureau Chief at NPR, where she has been for a year and a half, and will continue to be based in Seattle once she joins APM.

The public media operation has made a few changes in its executive leadership in recent months. Chandra Kavati joined as vice president of content distribution and partnerships in November and Christine Phelps was appointed SVP and chief human resources officer in January.
