Daily Pilot Editor Steps Up

CANALIS PROMOTED 
In an article in the Daily Pilot today, HERE, it was announced that John Canalis, Editor of the Times Community News in Orange County, will become Executive Editor of Times Community News and oversee other TCN newspapers, which are currently managed out of the Los Angeles Times facility in Los Angeles.

EVANS DEPARTING
Dan Evans, who some may recall spent some time as editor of the TCN papers in Orange County for a short time, has been Canalis' counterpart and is leaving the organization next week, so Canalis will absorb all his responsibilities and split his time between Los Angeles and the Orange County facility in Fountain Valley.

GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A GREAT GUY
This is a wonderful opportunity for Canalis in a world of print journalism that is fraught with uncertainty these days.  The LA Times has been offering buyouts to many staff members - Evans is taking one of those buyouts - so many familiar and famous names will no longer appear under that iconic masthead.  But, with those departures there are opportunities such as this one as the organization morphs into the new digitally-oriented age.

WE WISH HIM WELL
We have had a good relationship with John Canalis and wish him all the best in this new adventure.  He's one of the really good guys in this business and certainly deserves this promotion.
