Daily News loses another reporter

Rachel Uranga is the latest to escape — er, depart — the shrinking Daily News of Los Angeles. City editor John Miller sent this email to the staff today:

I'm saddened to report that Rachel Uranga has taken a voluntary buyout and will be leaving the Daily News after six memorable years. From the orange groves of Ventura County, where she got her start, to the tough streets of the Northeast Valley, where her police beat took her, Rachel's always-on enthusiasm for the job landed us scores of great stories. Her special knack for getting people to open up and give great quotes will be sorely missed. And what will the newsroom do without that inimitable sneeze? Let's wish her the best of luck in life and new pursuits.

By the way, I should have noted in my Tuesday Morning Buzz item that the Rosa Broadous obituary in the L.A. Times ran a couple of days after the Daily News had it.
