LA Times Vet David Lauter Returning to Washington as Bureau Chief

The LA Times career of David Lauter began in Washington, D.C. 24 years ago, via an eight-year stint covering the administrations of Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush. Now, after heading west in 1995, Lauter is returning to the Beltway as the Tribune Co.’s Washington D.C. bureau chief.

The paper’s media writer, James Rainey, broke the news via Twitter, after which came the official memo from Russ Stanton:

Another highlight of David’s tenure was the “Big Burn” series on wildfires, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for explanatory reporting.
