Los Angeles Times Media Group Names Michael J. Tannourji New Advertising Executive

The Los Angeles Times Media Group has named Michael J. Tannourji their new executive vice president of advertising.

Tannourji arrives from Ernest & Young where he served as the former director of business development. He replaces John T. O’Loughlin, who left the company earlier this year.

“Mike Tannourji’s strong track record in transforming businesses for growth and profitability makes him uniquely suited to his new position,” Kathy Thomson, president and chief operating officer of Times Media said in a statement. “He has the experience necessary to drive the cultural shifts that are imperative to our future growth.”

In his new role, Tannourji “will be responsible for generating revenue at the media organization, which publishes the Los Angeles Times and the Hoy Spanish-language newspaper and operates latimes.com and other websites.”

He will have his work cut out for him as the Tribune Co. expects its publishing revenue to fall more than 5 percent by 2013.
