KPCC Places 3rd, Marketplace debuts in top 10 at AAJA Trivia Bowl

We have exciting news to report – Team KPCC finished in 3rd Place out of 24 teams at the 2016 Asian-American Journalists Association Trivia Bowl! Team Marketplace made a strong debut by breaking into the Top 10.  Just ahead of KPCC in the top 2 spots were the two teams from the Los Angeles Times. The Trivia Bowl tests knowledge on current events, science, history, geography, California, sports, pop culture, literature, and arts & entertainment. These were tough questions and obscure facts. APGM

The Trivia Bowl is the signature fundraising event of the AAJA, supporting students who pursue the journalism profession; providing increased training to Asian American and Pacific Islander journalists so they can be effective leaders for positive change in the industry with a commitment to diversity in the newsroom, and forging stronger ties within the AAPI communities.

We’d like to recognize the following KPCC team members for their hard-fought achievement:



Ben Bergman
Kevin Ferguson
James Kim
Sachi Kobayashi
Roy Lenn
Mary Marcus
Aaron Mendelson
Becca Murray
Quincy Surasmith
Maura Walz




Thank you to those from Marketplace for coming out and building a foundation for future participation.
