LA Biz Journal editor to run San Fernando Biz Journal
Charles Crumpley, the editor of the Los Angeles Business Journal, has been named editor and publisher of the San Fernando Valley Business Journal.
Jonathan Diamond, who has been a managing editor two times in the past for the Los Angeles newspaper, will be the new editor. The changes are effective Monday.
A story on the Los Angeles paper’s website states, “‘Charlie’s done great work here,’ said Matt Toledo, the publisher and chief executive of the Los Angeles Business Journal. ‘I’m thrilled he is taking his experience from Los Angeles to enhance the brand and reach of the Valley operation, which is our sister publication. His experience and passion is essential for the growth of that paper.’
“Toledo explained that the change stems from a decision to change the direction of the Los Angeles news operation in which the editorial staff will become more involved with the Business Journal’s conferences, awards programs and networking events, among other things.
“Since that’s not Crumpley’s expertise, it was concluded that his skills would be more helpful in the Valley, which hasn’t had a publisher since August.
“‘I’m very proud of what our journalists accomplished at the Los Angeles Business Journal in my 10 years here,’ Crumpley said. ‘And of course, I’m eager to get started in the Valley. There’s already a great team of reporters under the editor, Joel Russell. I’m reasonably familiar with the business community there, but I’m looking forward to becoming personally acquainted with the dynamic entrepreneurs and operators in our territory.'”
