Radio Killing the Newspaper Star?

7629_1200318600.jpgDawn Girocco has been hired by the L.A. Times to head the advertising department.

From L.A. Observed: “Those fears within the Tribune about Sam Zell‘s radio-izing of the company look even more justified now. A day after the Los Angeles Times hired a top executive with roots in the Phil Anschutz empire, he hires a new advertising senior VP from FM radio. Pretty sad that being mentioned as one of Los Angeles Magazine’s ill-fated 64 Best Things is written into a bio as a mentionable plus.”
