Capitol Weekly editor Anthony York will join the Los Angeles Times as a state government staff writer, according to Gorkana. York, who also edited the Daily Roundup in Sacramento, had been writing for the Times' "California Politics" blog under an agreement announced earlier this year. The announcement does not say what will happen to the Capitol Weekly or the Daily Roundup.
*Also from Gorkana: Peter Wallsten is leaving his job as national political correspondent for the Wall Street Journal to cover the White House for the Washington Post. Wallsten left the Los Angeles Times for the Journal in October 2009.
**Updated: Matthew Fleischer at fishbowlLA did the work I didn't and has learned that John Howard, managing editor at the Capitol Weekly, will take over as executive editor when York leaves. He expects to announce a few new hires, as well.
