Los Angeles Times business editor John Corrigan sent out the following announcement, which was obtained by LA Observed:

“The Business section is thrilled to welcome Duke Helfand as its new healthcare reporter, covering the expected implementation of health care reform, the health insurance industry and related topics.

“In his 16 years here at The Times, Duke has distinguished himself with his deeply reported, well-crafted stories. Most recently he has covered religion, chronicling the controversies surrounding gay clergy in Protestant churches, Muslims in the military and other issues. Before that, he specialized in politics and education, but his long career here — starting with City Times in South L.A. — has also included weekend editing duties in Metro and coverage of police and local government.

“Outside of work, Duke says he spends much of his free time playing catch with his ‘three unbelievably cute kids, who are baseball fanatics.’

“Please join me in welcoming Duke to the Business team.”
