OC Weekly hires editor to succeed Swaim

From Times Staff Reports

OC Weekly has a new editor -- Ted B. Kissell, former senior editor at the Ventura County Star.

Kissell, who starts April 2, fills a vacancy left by the resignation of founding editor Will Swaim, who is launching an alternative paper in Long Beach.

A 1990 journalism graduate of Northwestern University, Kissell was a staff writer at Miami New Times and associate editor at New Times Broward-Palm Beach, both alternative papers, according to Village Voice Media, which owns OC Weekly. He left Florida in 2003 on a Fulbright scholarship to study bilingual education in Mexico and the next year began editing an employee newsletter at the Los Angeles Times before heading to Ventura to oversee news and court reporters, the company said.
