Bob Sipchen, another LAT veteran, is joining the Sierra Club, as was predicted when the buyouts were announced. Sipchen, who’s won everything worth winning, will be Editor in Chief of Sierra magazine and Deputy National Communications Director.
Sipchen won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize and Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi award for editorial writing (with Alex Raksin) for a series about people with mental illness and addictions living on
America’s streets. Sipchen also shared in the paperâ€™s Pulitzer for its team coverage of the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.
His outdoor creds are equally strong.
