August 25, 2008 News

Thanks to the ever-on-top-of-things Lucy Pollak for this…

Got a message from Nancy Bishop that the Venice Magazine calendar has been discontinued with the September issue, and that the gmail venicemagcal address has been disabled.

And this…

Kristin Viola is now the editor of Where LA. Benjamin Epstein remains as Executive Editor, but he will concentrate primarily on Where OC and Performances magazine.

I just spoke with Benjamin, and he's also editor of the company's Guestbook LA and Guestbook Orange County. Keep him on your lists, especially because Performances covers LA-area arts.

The Advocate goes from bi-weekly to monthly in January, according to an announcement from Jon Barrett, the magazine's new editor-in-chief.

Oscar Garza turns up at the Daily News. About that and more on high-level staff courtesy of LA Observed.

Cision's Revolving Door has news of the demise of two magazines: Hachette Filipacchi's Home and Heart's Town & Country Travel.
