LAT loses managing editor for online

Sean Gallagher, the editor in charge of the online product at the L.A. Times since late 2009, is leaving the paper for the United Kingdom. The note from editor Russ Stanton doesn't specify what Gallagher will be doing. "Excitingly for him and sadly for us, he has decided to act on that calling and will be leaving at the end of this month and moving to London, where he plans to expand his already formidable digital skills," Stanton writes. "It is in no small part because of his efforts that the traffic and the number of visitors to latimes.com have more than doubled since he joined our newsroom."
