LA Times editor Russ Stanton announced yesterday that Ashley Dunn will be taking over the California section from David Lauter–who recently became Tribune Company‘s Washington bureau chief. Dunn is a 17-year Times vet, who also put in a stint with the New York Times back in the 90′s. Dunn was most recently the paper’s deputy national editor.
