Our colleagues at FishbowlLA have a story today about Tina Brown’s latest hire for The Daily Beast.
According to Dylan Stableford Brown has snagged Los Angeles Times television editor Kate Aurthur to serve as West Coast editor.
Aurthur will report to the Daily Beast’s West Coast Bureau Chief Gabe Doppelt, who Brown poached from W back in June. Brown also recently lured away our own editorial director Rebecca Fox. She’s joining the online publication later this month as director of editorial development and operations. Although Fox will be based in New York, she’s just one example of Brown’s recent quest to stock her staff — on the West Coast and here in New York — with talented journalists and editors with impressive resumes.
