L.A. Times names new editor in "battle for future"
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -
The Los Angeles Times on Thursday
named its fourth editor in three years, choosing digital news
chief Russ Stanton as best suited to lead the newspaper as it
fights for survival in a new media age.
Stanton, who had headed the newspaper's digital news report
and Web integration, replaces James O'Shea, who was fired in
January in a clash with Publisher David Hiller. Stanton was
formally named to head the country's fourth-largest newspaper
one day after it announced 100 to 150 job cuts.
