LA Times names new food/ag reporter

January 22, 2010

Los Angeles Times business editor John Corrigan sent out the following message to the staff Thursday evening:

“After a six-year tour as a national correspondent, P.J. Huffstutter will be rejoining Business on Jan. 25 as a Los Angeles-based reporter focused on the food and agriculture beat.

“Most of you know P.J.’s work: covering an eight-state region in the Midwest, she  wrote about two serial killers, three major hurricanes and hundreds of tales about life in America’s heartland.

“P.J. first joined the Times’ business staff in Orange County in 1997, where she covered local technology firms and the meteoric rise of Broadcom Corp. She later joined the paper’s technology team in Los Angeles, where she reported on the collapse of the dot-com world and the convergence of technology and Hollywood.

“On the food and agriculture beat, P.J. will focus on several key areas – including how climate change and the water wars are threatening farming. She’ll also report on food safety issues, and give us close looks at some of the giant agribusinesses that play such a big role in what we eat. She’s also aiming to provide some interesting takes on food culture.”
