Tronc-owned Los Angeles Times named Forbes Media executive Lewis DVorkin as its new editor in chief, Ross Levinsohn, the paper’s publisher, said Monday. At Forbes, DVorkin, 65, held roles including executive editor, editor and chief product officer. He previously worked at The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and The New York Times.
Lewis DVorkin: “Journalism in the digital era requires disruptive business models. Dispensing with satellite transmission and truck delivery in favor of WiFi on planes may be part of it. So is finding a scalable model for publishing quality content that satisfies the voracious appetite of digital news consumers. Then you have to match the cost of producing it with what marketers are willing to pay.”
