LAist Lindsay William-Ross is Having a Baby!

For eight years now, Lindsay William-Ross (pictured) has been enlivening the pages of LAist.com, starting out in early 2005 as a volunteer and replacing Zach Behrens as editor-in-chief in November 2010. Come May, her time with the site is scheduled to take a new and delightful turn with the birth of her first child.

“We’re still working out the details, but I expect to take somewhere around eight weeks off,” William-Ross tells FishbowlLA. “My current team of stellar associate editors will be assuming some of my duties, but I suspect we will bring on another set of hands in some sort of capacity to help them out. I produce around 125 posts per month, so in order to sustain our healthy traffic, I’d like to see someone else on board to keep up our volume.”

Friends of William-Ross and whose who follow the single-mom-to-be on Twitter know there is one other key member at her West Toluca Lake household. One whose world is about to similarly be rocked.

Beginning January 1st, Behrens will head up the online community news and engagement efforts of by-then no-longer-PBS-affiliated KCET. He joins the station’s ranks on Monday, November 8th, to start preparing that outreach.
