Marketplace, a U.S. business news franchise produced and distributed by American Public Media, appoints Neal Scarbrough as its new Vice President and General Manager. Scarbrough will oversee a team of broadcast and digital journalists, editors and producers across radio and on demand in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, London and Shanghai.

"We are excited for Neal to come on board as Marketplace's new Vice President and General Manager. He has an extensive background in media, broadcast journalism and a strong track record when it comes to innovation, program development and building audiences," said American Public Media President Dave Kansas. "In addition, Neal is a proven culture leader, with a deep devotion to diversity and inclusion. We are excited to have him joining the APM leadership team and look forward to adding his gifts and talents to all that we do at Marketplace and APM."

"What we thought we knew about our economy changes every day, and Marketplace has established a gold standard using interviews and storytelling to make real sense of it to real people," added Scarbrough. "It's a big win for me to be able to work with such a dynamic collection of talent, producers and editors. Our job is to package this essential information for new audiences in new places and to keep introducing our followers to the emerging voices that are shaping our ever-changing economy."

Scarbrough joins Marketplace from FOX Sports, where he served as Vice President and Executive Editor since 2016. At FOX Sports, he supervised content, coached talent and maintained editorial oversight across FOX's national sports networks. Scarbrough also was the founding co-chair of the FOX Sports Inclusion Council, which focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives across the organization.

Scarbrough has risen through the ranks as a journalist and has held many leadership posts, including executive producer, operations chief, news director, sports editor and digital general manager. He directed broadcast operations for the New England Sports Network, where he oversaw the automation of two studios and control rooms. As Senior Executive Producer at Aljazeera America, he built and led the news network's sports unit, including the development of original programming. He also served as Vice President of Digital Media for Comcast's Versus Sports Network, where his team was the first to stream live daily coverage of the Tour de France.

Scarbrough will begin his role at Marketplace in late September-early October.
