CITY BEAT CALENDAR EDITOR POSITION ELIMINATED, NEW ARTS EDITOR ADDED
This just in from (now former) Calendar Editor Alfred Lee at City Beat:
Today is my last day at L.A. CityBeat – the Calendar Editor position has been eliminated. It’s been a real pleasure working with you! I’m not sure where I’m going next, but I do plan to keep writing in L.A., so please keep in touch with me at alfredjlee [and the rest of it is at] yahoo.com.Alfred, goodbye and good luck!
Incoming arts editor Ron Garmon will be taking over the “7 Days in L.A.” feature, as well as other arts-related coverage. As far as calendar listings go, I don't know in what form they’ll continue, but in the meantime you can keep sending submissions to calendar [and the rest of it is at] lacitybeat.com.
Here’s my understanding of the new staff line-up [all @lacitybeat.com]:
Editor: Rebecca Schoenkopf - rebeccas
Arts Editor: Ron Garmon - rong
Film Editor: Andy Klein – andyk
Calendar listings: calendar
VARIETY NOT MOVING AS OF NOW
Read somewhere that Variety was moving its offices, but I've learned that nothing is imminent. If anyone hears differently, let me know.
Laura Kelly at KCSN sends this:
"I’m writing on behalf of Martin Perlich to provide you with important updated parking information for guests that come to the KCSN Radio. Unfortunately, KCSN is no longer able to provide parking passes. Guests will either need to park on the street or purchase a parking pass as they enter the parking structure."
LA TIMES BUSINESS EDITOR
I'm sure you've all heard by now that the LA Times has named Sallie Hofmeister its new business editor. According to the story, "She replaces Davan Maharaj, who becomes managing editor."
