Afternoon snacks

  • Ax falls at Channel 2/9: veteran reporter Paul Dandridge has been taken off the bio page, though his blog remains — last updated in August. Newsroom sources say that Inland Empire reporter Craig Fiegener and health reporter Dilva Henry are also gone and that morning weatherman John Elliott now toils for WCBS in New York. (Franklin Avenue reports that Henry left to join the morning show at FM 100.3, which has been rechristened as V100 with an R&B oldies format.)
  • James Gilden of The Internet Traveler appeared on NPR's Morning Edition today to talk about business travel from his perch as a columnist in the Times's Business section. Oops, they just cut that column — page three in the Saturday section runs ads now. Expect also to see cutbacks in content of the Sunday Travel section, despite reader letters complaining that it's already too skimpy.
  • Two big agent defections from ICM and the new Wall Street Journal analyzed by Mark Lacter.
  • "The O.C." RIP. "Megan Mullally" too.
  • The Producers Guild nominees for best picture are out.
  • David Davis gives his best of 2006 in sports media at SoCal Sports Observed.
  • New Email to LA Observed up on L.A. as a literate city, the county mayor notion and Bob Eubanks.
  • Santa Clarita has had an outburst of citizen blogs.
