LA Times’ Matea Gold Joining Tribune Washington Bureau

MateaGold062410.jpg Los Angeles Times media reporter Matea Gold is leaving the media beat and moving to Washington DC, where she will join the DC bureau of Tribune.

Tribune is the parent company of the LA Times.

While she has most recently covered the media, Gold is also a veteran political reporter, and has covered the campaigns of Al Gore, John Kerry, Howard Dean and Joe Lieberman, among others.

According to an internal memo from Tribune DC bureau chief Kerry Luft, Gold will start after Labor Day, where she will be helping out with Tribune’s coverage of the 2010 midterm elections.

Luft’s memo to staff is after the jump.

Subject: Staff announcement — Matea Gold

Dear all -

I’m delighted to announce that Matea Gold will be joining the Washington bureau.

Currently a correspondent based in the LA Times’ New York bureau, Matea brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record as an innovative, dogged reporter and a sparkling writer.

Her most recent assignment has been covering the media, a prickly bunch to be sure, but she’s been widely praised for her fairness and accuracy. She’s also a veteran of the presidential campaign trail, having covered Howard Dean, John Kerry, Joe Lieberman and Al Gore, among others. And yet she still likes political coverage!

In previous incarnations at the LAT she covered the US-Mexico border, as well as the rise of gangs in East LA.

She’s fluent in Spanish, a graduate of UCLA (sorry, Stanford folk) and an altogether delightful colleague.

More on her specific assignment later, but she’ll certainly be helping out on midterm elections for starters.

Please join me in welcoming Matea. She’ll be here after Labor Day, but I hope she can join us for a few visits in the meantime.

Kerry
