More Executive News

Hey folks,

You probably saw the news about our new CEO and publisher, Edward Moss. It was a surprise when word started circulating through the newsroom this morning, so I spoke to Ron this afternoon to see what it means for us. The short answer is that we should come out fine-- while it'll take some time to adjust to a new boss, he's an ex-Greensheet guy who's spent a long time in the business and hopefully remembers the unique, unusual opportunities that we've got here in LA.

On his brief tour through the newsroom, he seemed like a friendly enough gentleman, so let's welcome him back to the DN and look forward to finding ways to work together. We're in a period of intense change here now and we'll enjoy showing him all of our capabilities. Under his predecessors, the union's established a good relationship with management and found ways to collaborate for make things better all around. It's my hope that we'll be able to continue that for a long time to come.

Thanks for your time and keep up the fine work,
