Danielle Dorsey has joined the Los Angeles Times’ food team as an assistant editor for guides.
As per the Times:
“This is a new role for our department, which reflects the newspaper’s overall commitment to utility journalism and service to our readers. Dorsey’s mission is to expand our growing slate of point-of-interest guides that reflect the range of L.A. cuisines, from restaurants, shops, dishes and drinks to neighborhood-specific maps.
“She’ll work closely with our columnists, staff writers and freelancers, who collectively have already built an impressive stack of maps for such local obsessions as classic Mexican restaurants, halal food, dumplings and more.”
Previously, Dorsey was a senior West Coast editor at Thrillist, where she oversaw food, drink and travel coverage across California and Las Vegas. She freelanced for Lonely Planet, Culture Trip, Essence, Travel+Leisure, Travel Noire and Well+Good.
She also appeared on “Good Day L.A.,” KCRW’s “Greater LA” and “All Things Considered.”
Dorsey graduated from California State University, Los Angeles.
