After months of uncertainty and turmoil, combined with the ongoing soap opera that is Tribune ownership, the LA Times sounds like it’s finally moving forward with its digital efforts.
My friend Rob Barrett gets a big promotion. This is great for Rob, of course, but even better for the Times.
I’m surprised that Joel Sappell is out as AME for Interactive. He’s a pretty sharp journalist.
If you’re a top-notch online editor, note in the LAObserved item linked above, the Times is apparently looking for a new editor of LATimes.com. Even though Tribune ownership is in turmoil, it sounds like the Times is taking control of its own digital destiny, so this could be a pretty plum job for the right person.
