Drex Heikes Responds to Neon Tommy Piece

drex-heikes2.pngWe asked LA Weekly’s new editor Drex Heikes what was true in the Neon Tommy profile. Are they going to be hiring more reporters? What is the future of the paper?

“The kid who wrote it was first rate. I wish it had been more about the paper and less about yours truly. I asked him several times to focus on the paper because I could tell he was going all messiah, which is utterly misguided,” Heikes tells FBLA.

Noting, “The websites advisors are both former Weekly employees. I wonder what happened in the editing.”

But tellingly Heikes asks for patience, “I wish that crowd would calm down and give us a year.”
