Drex Heikes To Be New Editor at LA Weekly

From the LA Weekly blog:

Long-time Los Angeles journalist Drex Heikes will return to California this summer to become LA Weekly’s next editor. His homecoming follows another happy event: his acceptance last month of the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for Public Service on behalf of the Las Vegas Sun for an investigation he assigned and edited.

During an 18-year career at the Los Angeles Times, Heikes served as editor of the Sunday magazine–where he directed both long-form news journalism and the coverage of local arts and culture–and as foreign affairs editor in the paper’s Washington bureau. He spent the fall of 2001 in New York City supervising the Times’ coverage of the World Trade Center attacks.

Welcome back home Heikes.
