Maria Elena Fernandez Out at the LA Times

Twelve year vet at the LA Times, Maria Elena Fernandez, is no longer with the paper as of yesterday. She was a reporter in the Calender section covering television for nearly seven years.

Fernandez tells FishbowlLA, “You just need to read the Calendar section and look at the Web site to know that in the last two years something has gone terribly wrong. The Times is moving in the wrong direction, and it’s been painful to see. Calendar is not the joyous, inspiring place it once was and the paycheck just wasn’t worth it anymore. I am sad about leaving so many good friends behind and wish them only the best.”

Fernandez told us she has a gig lined up but can’t tell us the details yet.

Good luck to you, Maria!
