Daily Journal has openings again

The Los Angeles Daily Journal has undergone a new bout of turnover in recent weeks. A former staffer says the departures have included page designer Aris Davoudian, associate editor Michael Gottlieb and entertainment law reporter Jean-Luc Renault. On Tuesday editor David Houston announced another exit with a pitch to come use his paper as a steppingstone. The memo to staff:

All,

Catherine Ho has taken a job at the Washington Post. This is a big blow for the Daily Journal. Cat came here a couple years ago and built the labor & employment beat into a model beat for the Daily Journal, writing first-rate stories on trends and developments in the practice that appeal to a statewide audience. Cat's departure is an occasion for happiness too. It shows how the Daily Journal can be a wonderful vehicle for a smart, driven reporter to build a great career. Cat's not leaving until June 7. so there will be time to say goodbye.

In the meantime, let all your friends know that I have openings in Los Angeles and Palo Alto for smart, ambitious reporters who dream of working for the Washington Post someday.

David

Ho had come to the Daily Journal in 2009 from the L.A. Times Metpro internship program.
