Steve Hymon out at Times

L.A. Times staffers affected by today's cuts began getting calls at home yesterday, with one of them transportation writer Steve Hymon. He posted confirmation of his layoff on his LAT email address. This is one of the names I meant in my comment this morning. Hymon was part of the Times reporting team that won a public service Pulitzer in 2005 for stories on King-Drew medical center and wrote a weekly notes column for awhile out of City Hall. More recently he has been covering transit issues and was writing the paper's Bottleneck blog until it was folded into L.A. Now in December. There are people and a few blogs in town that followed his reporting on transportation issues quite closely. Don't know yet what will be the future of that beat at the ever-slimmer Times.
