Downtown will be the workplace for soon to be former LAist Editor Tony Pierce, who will be overseeing the 25 blogs at the LA Times.
Andy [Steinberg, LAist News Editor]: Is there anything specifically interesting that you're charged with off the bat in your job description? What is your proper title?
Tony: The title is still being worked on. i hope theres a team of people on that right now, actually. and to be honest, that was one of the biggest things Meredith [Artley, LATimes] and I discussed. She's really open minded as I am. Hopefully it will say Blog in there somewhere. But that word has never been on a business card at the LAT so it will probably be something far more general. Titles don't interest me much. people usually just point and say, yep thats the nutball I was telling you about yesterday.
