Comings and goings
Two imminent departures from the Los Angeles Newspaper Group to report.
Josh Kleinbaum, director of audience development for LANG, has given notice and will be leaving as of June 3. Kleinbaum says: "My wife, who works for Yahoo, got the opportunity for a job in their NY office, so we're moving to New York (where I grew up, and all my family is). I don't have a job yet, but have a few good leads and am pretty confident I'll land something. I'm looking at jobs in the online content development world, not just at newspapers."
Fred Ortega, who covers Pasadena City Hall for the Pasadena Star-News, just gave his two-weeks notice today. He is leaving to take a job as community affairs deputy for Board of Equalization chairwoman Judy Chu. He will be working out of her Monterey Park headquarters.
