Los Angeles Times Assistant Business Editor Chris Gaither is the latest member of the media to make the switch to PR, to fill a coveted internal position at Google as senior manager in the corporate communications department. He begins on June 29th to focus on Google News and Book Search.

Gaither’s career straddles this downturn, and the last, when he started covering tech as a contributor to the New York Times in the Fall of 2000. From there he landed a full time job as the Boston Globe’s only west coast staff writer, and then joined the LA Times in early 2004.
