News-Press editor to move to Boston

Danette Goulet, editor of the Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader for four years, announced last week she will step down, citing plans to move her family to Boston and raise her 7-month-old son there.

She will stay on as director of editorial for all four local Times Community News titles, including the Crescenta Valley Sun and the La Cañada Valley Sun, until a replacement is named.

Executives are engaged in an “active” recruiting process to find Goulet’s replacement, Targeted Media President John O’Loughlin said. “We have some big shoes to fill,” he said, adding the person hired will have to continue to push the four papers to remain “as relevant and engaged as we can.”

O’Loughlin, Goulet and staff will host a community open house from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, at the News-Press office, 221 N. Brand Blvd., Second Floor.
