Caruso gets another mag

| 1 Comment

Michael Caruso, the editor of Los Angeles while the magazine was owned by Disney, is taking over the top spot at Jann Wenner's Men's Journal, the New York Post says. Caruso was last the editor of Maximum Golf.

After his last gig went bust in September 2001, he spent seven months in Southeast Asia, where he's been mountain climbing in Nepal, sea kayaking in Vietnam, motorcycling across Thailand, and scuba diving off the coast of Myanmar (the former Burma).

Caruso was the editor at Los Angeles who killed a critical story on Otis Chandler -- some say because the ex-Times publisher phoned up Disney chairman Michael Eisner to complain. ( on Comments and see what ex-Los Angeles senior editor Mark Horowitz has to say about the Chandler-Eisner claim. In short, he was there and remembers the Chandler story died of its own failings.
