Comings and goings*
After a series of departures from the Pasadena Star-News, there's finally an arrival to report.
Nate McIntire, a graduate of Pomona College and USC journalism school, will fill one of the open city-side slots at the paper. Until last week, McIntire worked as an assistant at the Los Angeles Times, covering prep sports. Prior to that he was a research assistant at West Magazine, which is no longer. McIntire interned at the Star-News in 2005, so will be on somewhat familiar ground.
With McIntire on staff, the Star-News will have four full-time reporters. An expected transfer of SGV Tribune reporter Dan Abendschein to Pasadena would bring the number to five.
*Update: I'm told Ben Baeder, a one-time city reporter for the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group, will return on a 6-month contract to write for the group's business section.
