Los Angeles magazine hires Immediato

Linda Immediato, the editor-in-chief at Pasadena magazine and former deputy at Angeleno, is moving over to Los Angeles as senior editor. Here's the staff note from editor-in-chief Mary Melton.

Hi everyone,

I’m thrilled to report that we have a new senior editor joining the magazine next week. Linda Immediato comes to us from Pasadena Magazine, where she has been editor-in-chief for the past two years and accomplished a lot with a little in her time there. Previously, she was deputy editor at Angeleno, overseeing the arts, culture, fashion, and lifestyle pages. Born and raised in New York, Linda began her journalism career as an on-air news reporter for WBAI Radio (then an NPR affiliate). She later worked for several years honing her foodie skills as a senior editor at Gourmet before writing a screenplay about celebrity chefs that wound up being optioned and brought her to L.A. eight years ago. She landed at the LA Weekly, where she extensively covered Los Angeles fashion, culture, and nightlife as the lifestyle editor and was a founding member of their fashion blog, The Style Council. Linda has lived in Venice, Santa Monica, Echo Park, and Los Feliz, and currently resides in Franklin Village in a 100-year-old house with her border collie, Billie, and her cat, Loretta LaRoo.

Immediato wrote back in 2006 about losing her home in Venice and living out of her car with a dog named Stevie.

Added media note: Tony Pierce, deemed expendable this summer as L.A. Times blog editor, posted on his website that he's the new blog editor at KPCC starting today.
