As part of the rebuilding of the Los Angeles Times, Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine, Deputy Managing Editor Sewell Chan and Deputy Editor, Project Management and Transformation John McCutchen made the following announcement.
We are therefore delighted to announce that Steve is bringing his talents to our video desk full-time, effective March 11. As a video journalist, he will shoot, edit and produce online videos — shareable on YouTube and on other platforms — with a focus on the stories of Angelenos and Southern Californians.
Born and raised in East Los Angeles, Steve studied English at UC Berkeley, and received his master’s degree in journalism there. For five years, he was the social media coordinator at The Getty. We are grateful that our former colleagues Mitra Kalita and Alexandra Manzano spotted his tremendous talent and brought him to The Times in 2015.
