Exclusive: Senior Features Editor Tom Christie Out at the LA Weekly

It’s a sad day for Los Angeles–especially for the arts. The last true stalwart of the old LA Weekly editorial guard is moving on. Senior features editor Tom Christie spent his last day at the Weekly yesterday–ending a 15-year tenure.

“I had a great run,” he tells FBLA, “but I’m very much looking forward to moving on.”

Christie says he has no idea how is departure will affect the LA Weekly‘s arts coverage–which he’d been in charge of for years. He says the newfound time will allow him to finish up a documentary he’s been working on about sculptor Richard Serra as well as a screenplay adaptation of AW Hill‘s novel “Nowhere-Land.”

Christie is one of the best editors in Los Angeles, who learned his craft under the great Harold Hayes. We wish him the best of luck out there.
