As BuzzFeed’s first, former and so far only LA bureau chief, Richard Rushfield saw his fair share of solid Web traffic reports. But he has now moved on to a company where those numbers are truly spectacular.

FishbowlLA tipsters inform that Rushfield joined Yahoo Entertainment a few weeks ago as features editor. Sure enough, we found what looks to be a first bylined item, dated May 30. Although we imagine much of Rushfield’s day-to-day duties will fall on the enterprise and long-lead assignment side.

Rushfield joins Yahoo Entertainment on the heels of former TMZ GM and LA Times vet Alan Citron’s arrival as business lead.

Scott Robson, founding editor of the LA Times’ The Envelope is bound for New York City, where he’ll be has editor-in-chief of AOL Movies and TV. Robson also honcho’ed the creation of the Tribune Company’s new Metromix sites that will roll out this summer. Tom O’Neil is waving a tiny white hankie as he writes:

He’s a crackerjack editor and ace guy gifted with huge talent, infinite patience and unquitting wit and smile. This awards expert decrees: Scott Robson gives, by far, the Best Performance by an Editor in Cyberspace. Period. There are no other nominees.

FBLA wishes Robson all the luck in the world, which he won’t need, as David Carr is off the awards beat. Maybe he can meet the folks at Eat the Press.
