Times, Tribune foreign desks merge
The Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune will merge their foreign desk into a single Tribune Co. desk that will be run out of Los Angeles, LA Observed reports. The merger has meant some cuts and some reassignments. For example, Tina Susman, the Times' Baghdad bureau chief, will go to New York to replace Erika Hayasaki, who is leaving the paper.
