LAT Loses Its Chief Revenue Officer

Yes, we know—insert your own joke here: What did this person do all day? Was his informal internal CRO abbreviation SOL? And so on.

Actually, much of what John T. O’Loughlin (pictured) did before TheWrap’s Lucas Shaw got the scoop this morning that he is leaving probably involved trying to translate the incredible success of LATimes.com into equally robust revenue streams. Here’s the statement given to Shaw by LAT spokesperson Nancy Sullivan:

“John O’Loughlin has been a valued member of the Tribune Company team for over 20 years and we wish him the very best in his next endeavors. The Times is in the process of looking at both internal and external candidates to head a strong, diverse revenue team that delivered a great 2011.”

latlogo11072.gif

The Envelope returns at the LA Times, and it’s all gussied up. As we all know but are reminded by Rob Barrett:

The Envelope has made the Los Angeles Times the frontrunner for unique coverage of the race from the inside.

Right you are, if you think so.

John T. O’Loughlin, the SVP/Marketing, Planning & Development, sends the memo:

Our interactive colleagues have completely redesigned The Envelope’s homepage to bring yet more entertainment industry leaders and avid entertainment enthusiasts to the site–offer better usability, increased news coverage, and upgraded news features, including the new Contender Countdown. In addition to these enhancements, there are also new online editorial voices, including Todd Martens and Pete Hammond. The site is live, so check it out.

You had us at “interactive colleagues”.

On Wednesday, we’ll begin producing The Envelope print series once again. Now in its sophomore year, there are plans for 11 issues this season and this week’s debut issue will be a 40-page Award Season Preview, followed by the Best Actor issue the following week.

New for 2008, we’re extending The Envelope brand a step further by creating an experiential event program called The Envelope Screening Series. We’ve also secured Mercedes-Benz as the series’ presenting sponsor ensuring this new addition to the Envelope family is again capturing alternative and incremental revenue. Starting Wednesday and running through mid-December, this exclusive invite-only event will showcase some of the top films from this year’s awards season and will feature Q&A sessions moderated by editorial staffers from The Times and The Envelope, including John Horn, Pete Hammond, Kenneth Turan, and Patrick Goldstein.

So who’ll be invited to these events? Academy voters? And why Q & As with people who write about the movies, as opposed to those who make them? Call us when Tom O’Neil is on deck.
