There's a flurry of new jobs and ex-jobs the last couple of days. (See Friday.) The latest involve a couple of alums of the Wall Street Journal's Los Angeles bureau.
- Former bureau chief Jonathan Friedland, who left in 2004 to help launch Meximerica Media, is the new vice president for corporate communications at Disney. Zenia Mucha remains executive VP of corporate communications at the Mouse.
- John Lippman, who took over the Journal's Hollywood column after the death of Tom King, is joining Sitrick and Company, the Century City crisis PR firm. Lippman had covered Hollywood for the Journal since 1994 and before that was on the Business staff at the L.A. Times. A former colleague of his there, Mark Saylor — at one time the Business desk's entertainment editor — also works for Sitrick. The WSJ has supplied a lot of Sitrick talent through the years.
- Friday was Chris Marlowe's last day as new media and technology editor of The Hollywood Reporter. She is headed to Sony.
- Joe McDonnell returns to weekday sports talk starting Monday 7 pm-11 pm on KLAC AM 570 (deep in column.)
