Colleagues,Sanfield was bumped up to the position of interim publisher last month after Mark Ficarra left for a job at the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Like many of you, I’ve spent my entire adult life working for newspapers. After a few years working in the Coachella Valley, the past 26 years has truly been a love affair with The Daily Breeze and the South Bay.
I now have a terrific opportunity to switch gears. In a few weeks, I’ll be joining the Port of Los Angeles as its director of media relations. It’s the perfect time for me, both professionally and personally, to make a change.
I sincerely thank you for your effort, support and confidence. I took the helm as editor after the Breeze was put up for sale three years ago and I have been so proud of how our team has confronted the challenges our industry faces.
I owe a debt of gratitude to all my Breeze colleagues, past and present, for an inspiring ride here. I wish all of you good health and success.
