Randy Harvey Leaving LA Times for Houston Chronicle

Texas native Randy Harvey is returning home.

The Los Angeles Times associate editor is leaving the newspaper to become a featured sports columnist for the Houston Chronicle.

Harvey started at the LAT as a reporter in 1981, working his way up the ranks to become a columnist in 1996 and senior assistant editor four years later.

The Baltimore Sun managed to lure Harvey away for a two-year stint as assistant managing editor before returning to the LAT in 2006 as sports editor.

“I’ve been suppressing my inner Oscar Madison. After 12 years behind a desk in management, I’m letting him free,” Harvey told LA Observed via email.

But — bully for us — the paper beat us to it!

In a press release extolling the paper’s Olympics coverage, the paper’s PR machine let us know it’s on track to get 1 million pvs by the games’ end.

Congrats!
