LA Times staff told (tersely) that T.J. Simers is leaving

This morning's memo to the staff from the top editors of the Los Angeles Times explains nothing about the past three months of official silence regarding the T.J. Simers situation. It's noted that the sports editor is not one of the editors to sign the memo.

To the staff:

T.J. Simers has decided to leave the Los Angeles Times for a position at the Orange County Register.

T.J. covered sports for The Times for 23 years, the last 13 as a columnist. We appreciate his contributions, and we wish him well.

Davan and Marc

Well to be technically correct, Simers' final three months as an LA Times columnist were spent on the bench. Readers were never told why or even that he was gone. At least he was reportedly paid.
