LA Times Hires New Healthcare Reporter, Shuffles Staff

Last week, while we were apparently busy doing our pre-Valentine’s Day stretching regimen, the LA Times announced a series of hires and staff moves. First, Chad Terhune joined the paper as its newest healthcare reporter. Terhune’s most recent gigs were at Businessweek and SmartMoney; he also spent nearly a decade at the Wall Street Journal covering healthcare, among other beats.

The Times announced some major internal moves as well. First, David Meeks has been named the new assistant political editor for online. Meeks has been with the Washington Bureau since 2010. His new job will bring him to LA in the spring.

Seoul bureau chief John Glionna is coming back to America to become the new Las Vegas Bureau chief. He takes over for Ashley Powers who will now be on the LA civil courts beat.

Finally, Metro reporter Molly Hennessy-Fiske has been shipped to Houston to join the Times‘ national desk. She’ll be covering Texas and its neighboring states. Sad to see her go, but here’s hoping she’s in New Orleans right now doing a Mardi Gras piece as one of her first assignments.

Happy Fat Tuesday everybody!
