Editor Robin Rauzi Out at LAT

Tourism_rauzi_submitted.jpgBad news is Op/Ed editor Robin Rauzi is leaving the LA Times. Good news is she didn’t get laid off…she quit.

Good news.

Rauzi sends us this email:

Please pardon the impersonal nature of this, but I’m leaving the Los Angeles Times early next week, and time is running short to let everyone know. I’ve had a great time here — nearly 14 years with one off for good behavior — in Calendar, Travel and OpEd, in no small part because of the wonderful people I got to work with.

On Jan. 12 I’ll start my new job as senior publicist for UCLA Live, the performing arts series. Yes, yes… the journalists among you will say, “Rauzi? A flack?” And I will reply, “That’s senior flack to you.”

If you don’t know much about UCLA Live, I encourage you to check it out at If you’re in Los Angeles, I further encourage you to come see a show. Look for me at the press table.
