Scott Jagow, author of Marketplace‘s Scratch Pad blog since last February, will write his final post today. “The grant paying for my position is running out, and it won’t be renewed. Such are the times,” he explained to readers yesterday. The blog, funded through a CPB initiative for web-based economics coverage, will end. Matt Berger, the new web producer for, plans to add more contributors, new multimedia features, and updates to the homepage and site design. Jagow, who gave up his job hosting Marketplace Morning Report to create the blog, is off “to new and exciting adventures.”
