After nearly a decade with the Orange County Register, reporter Cindy Carcamo is moving on – and slightly north. She’ll be joining the Los Angeles Times as a national correspondent next month. Carcamo writes on her Facebook page:
I’ll be based in Arizona, covering regional issues such as the border, immigration and whatever else pops up. I start in Los Angeles on Oct. 1 and plan to move to Arizona some time after the new year. I’m super excited for my new adventure but also sad to leave such great peeps at the Reg, such as my amazing editor Susan Gill Vardon.
Carcamo’s most recent work is a 3-part series exploring illegal immigration by sea. Her work has received many honors, including numerous awards from the OC Press Club. Her 2011 story for Slake about a deportee’s return to Guatemala was named as a finalist for both the Livingston Award and the PEN Center USA Literary Award in Journalism.
