September 24, 2008 News

The LA Daily News has moved! New address:
21860 Burbank Blvd.
Woodland Hills, CA 91367

Congratulations to New Yorker Classical Music Critic Alex Ross for being honored with a MacArthur Genius Award! Read more about it here.

On the other side of the coin... check out this excellent column by the Baltimore Sun's Tim Smith on the Cleveland Plain Dealer's spineless decision to "cave into pressure from a faction representing the [Cleveland] orchestra" by prohibiting its veteran music critic Don Rosenberg from covering the symphony any more in favor of a different critic who, presumably, won't be as, well, critical.

Steve Harvey, another highly missed former LA Times writer, starts a blog.
