THANK GOODNESS FOR SMALL FAVORS
Happily, P.J. Ochlan reports that his wonderful “Arts Reports” interviews will continue at KMZT AM 1260 (soon to be called KGIL again) despite the station’s switch to a daytime news-talk/evening adults standards format on October 29. Read all about the changes in this LA Times piece today. K-Mozart will be available only on the secondary channel at 105.1 FM to listeners with HD radio receivers.
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
Westside Chronicle, RIP. Too bad. WeHoNews.com, um, chronicles the demise.
Hadn’t previously known of WeHoNews.com, which describes itself as “a community-based, community-driven news and information source… This cyber newspaper has been a vital public forum, available for all and sundry to use to express their views.” Contact there is Editor@wehonews.com.
NEED A GREAT JOB – OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES?
LA Philharmonic PR Director Adam Crane, one of the nicest guys in the world, is looking for a top-flight replacement for the un-replaceable Rachelle Roe, who is (sob) departing LA to grace the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as its director of public affairs. Anyway, if you know someone really terrific, check out the opportunity to be the Phil’s new associate director of public relations here.
AS IF THIS MIGHT HELP?
The LA Times has re-christened its Sunday magazine eponymously, discarding the “West” title of the last two years. I'd be happy to have them call it "Green Eggs and Spam" if only the content would improve. Pardon my crankiness -- it's just that when I'm in New York and I'm reading the NYT daily, I spend a lot more time wondering why the LAT can't run the kind of interesting features I'm seeing here.
Curiously, according to a memo seen by LA Observed, the newly renamed Los Angeles Times Magazine is looking to replace (?) or in any case hire a bunch of new folks to write it, including an editor, features editor, style editor and more. Know anyone who’s interested? Get in touch with Consulting Editor Lennie LaGuire.
