San Diego Union-Tribune startups reporter Brittany Meiling has been hired by the Los Angeles Times to work in content strategy.

“This is a field I’ve been dabbling in at the Union-Tribune in addition to my reporter responsibilities for the past year, and it’s something I get nerdy excited about,” she wrote on Twitter,

She has been at the Union-Tribune since 2018.

She previously was a senior writer at Endpoints News, which covers global biopharma. Meiling worked from San Diego, but covered global news.

Before that, she worked at the San Diego Business Journal since July 2014. While there, she pitched a new section of the business weekly dedicated entirely to startups and entrepreneurship. The new segment, launched June 2016 as “The Startup Page,” was designed to stand out from the rest of the publication.

She’s a Missouri State University graduate and worked at the Springfield Business Journal in Missouri.
