LA Weekly waits for the New (Times) regime

Nobody seems to be sure how, or if, the LA Weekly will change under ownership of the New Times. According to an article at the Village Voice website, Voice CEO David Schneiderman claims that union contracts at the Weekly (and Voice) will be honored, despite the New Times organization not being unionized. In the LAT, LA Weekly EIC Laurie Ochoa is quoted as saying “there are definitely a range of reactions and emotions” about being acquired by New Times. I’ll bet there are.

Anyway, it’s going to take the DOJ several months to approve the transaction, so there’s plenty of time for prognostication. We’ll try to post about it at least two or three times a day.
