Wall Street Journal bureau gets chief

Gabriel Kahn, the deputy chief in the WSJ's Los Angeles bureau on Wilshire since the summer, gets the top job when Bruce Orwall heads for London next month. Kahn (they call him Gabe) used to be the Wall Street Journal's deputy bureau chief for Southern Europe, based in Rome, and has also been posted in Asia.

Bureau catch-up: Mireya Navarro, formerly of the New York Times bureau here, has transferred back to New York and is covering the local environment.
