Nicholas Riccardi is Latest LA Times Departure

Top arts and entertainment editor Sallie Hofmeister wasn’t the only departure from the Los Angeles Times last Friday.

Former Denver bureau chief Nicholas Riccardi has also left and is headed back to the 303:

Today’s my last day at the LA Times. It’s been a wonderful ride. I’ve had the privilege of working with so many of the best journalists – and people – in the business. That was true on my first day, June 13, 1994 (when we reported the discovery of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman’s bodies) and it is true on June 15, 2012.

Keep in touch.

All the best,

Nick

LA Observed notes another high-profile LAT writer could be headed out the door next. Who needs layoffs when employees are leaving on their own, eh?
