Long way from L.A.

louise-roug-denmark.jpgLouise Roug Bokkenheuser, the former Los Angeles Times culture writer and Baghdad correspondent, was deputy editor of Newsweek International from January until this month (after coming over from the Daily Beast, where she was foreign editor.) She has just left New York to live in Copenhagen and make the switch to broadcast as host of a daily foreign affairs show called "Globus" on Denmark's Radio24syv. Friends on Facebook are congratulating her on her choice of seatmate.

From the archive: Not a bad line from 2005, if I may say so: "Louise Roug, who has been on the L.A. Times' Getty Museum beat, is moving on to cover an institution with less wealth, simpler politics and not as good an art collection. She will be covering Iraq."
