May 1, 2007 News

Here's what's new from the last week or so...

Cerise Valenzuela, Daily Breeze's assistant features editor, has departed, and I'm told all feature and entertainment pitches go to Features Editor Leo Smith, leo.smith@dailybreeze.com. Jim Farber's still on board as classical, art and theater writer.

Rebecca Epstein is the new arts editor at City Beat, promoted from calendar editor and replacing Natalie Nichols, who leaves to "do more writing," as she put it on her blog (http://hipspinster.blogspot.com/2007/05/free-girl-now.html). Reach Rebecca at Rebeccae@lacitybeat.com

P.J. Ochlan, in addition to doing his "Arts Report" pieces at KMZT Classical Radio, is now handling interviews at jazz station KKJZ FM. pochlan@mountwilsoninc.com

The excellent new arts site FineArtsLA.com has an easy-to-post-to calendar for arts events: http://www.fineartsla.com/

Keep me posted on any news you uncover!
