George Ramos, journalist was 63

george-ramos-calcoast.jpgThe body of Ramos, the former L.A. Times staff writer and editor, was found in his Morro Bay home after he did not respond to calls from colleagues at CalCoastNews.com. He was the editor of the website on the Central California coast. Ramos spent 25 years at the Times, including as a columnist, and until 2007 had been chairman of the journalism department at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. (I'm reminded that he also was involved with several shows on KCET through the years, and had taught journalism at USC before heading north to Cal Poly in 2003.)
