Pedro Rojas, the executive editor of La Opinión, will be stepping down from his position this Friday after eight years at the paper.
“I needed a break,” he told the Latino media site Media Movers. “In this job you have to be on call 24 hours a day, every day. I’ve been in the business a long time. Now I need to relax for a few months.”
Rojas won’t be too relaxed, however, as he’s both publisher and co-editor of the upstart student-run community newspaper Boyle Heights Beat.
Buena suerte, sir.
