The California Real Estate Journal, a sister publication of the Los Angeles Daily Journal, is folding, according to a memo obtained by LA Observed. The editor of the shuttered trade paper, Michael Gottlieb, will take a job as associate editor at the Daily Journal and several CREJ reporters might follow.
The memo, written by DJ editor David Houston, has some other news as well. First, DJ reporter Evan George won a national award for his health care coverage. Second, Houston praises the DJ as the future of newspapers and recommends reporters read the Wall Street Journal and beat-related blogs.
Finally, Houston admonishes reporters to get into the office by 9 a.m. and to email to their assignment editors by 9:15 a.m. with an update on what the reporter is working on that day. I'd guess the email plan will last a week. Maybe two.
