Gustavo Arellano named editor of OC Weekly

"I'm honored to have been a part of such an exemplary band of muckrakers, and I'm even more gratified that we pulled it off during the most challenging economic times our industry has ever faced," Kissell says on the Weekly site, "and while making an on-the-fly transition to being a daily online publication, as well as a weekly newspaper." Arellano adds: "I want to thank all the skinheads, pedophile priests, Know Nothings, and battleship tacos that made this day possible."
