Another Reporter Jumps from LA Times to OC Register

This past Thursday, sports reporter Gabriel Rizk (pictured) had the dubious honor of being bylined in both LA Times community newspaper the Glendale News-Press and the Orange County Register. Why, you may ask?

Because before he officially left the former for the latter on December 17, he completed one or two more GNP articles. Rizk is now covering the south coast region for the Register. Per the announcement:

Rizk is a prep sports star, having worked as sports prep editor and reporter at the Glendale News-Press since 2006. His former colleagues use words like ‘phenemonal and magnificent’ to describe the USC graduate’s work ethic and writing skills. It’s a matter of time before Register readers start offering the same accolades.

Rizk joins a couple of other brand new Register hires: copy-layout editor B.J. Terhune and listings coordinator Summer Rogers. Congrats to all.
