Mariel Garza to leave as LA News Group opinion editor

mariel-garza-lang.jpgMariel Garza has been the opinion editor of the Los Angeles News Group since the editorial pages of the LANG papers were put under one central editor in 2012. Before that, she was the opinion honcho at the Daily News — and before that an editorial writer there and a reporter at City Hall. She disclosed on Facebook that she is moving north to join Dan Morain's opinion staff at the Sacramento Bee.

I knew I'd eventually find a use for this Facebook thing, and this is it. To let as many of my friends and family know about my new gig. Here is it: Next month I leave L.A. and the Los Angeles News Group after 12 years and head to Sacramento for a fabulous new job as deputy editorial page editor for the Bee. My last day at LANG is Friday, Jan. 24....Woo hoo!

Nice tag line. No word yet on a replacement. Pending a hire or promotion, LANG is trying to remain opinion-relevant in the most ethnically and economically diverse region of the United States with an editorial board composed of a bunch of older white guys, engagement editor Jessica Keating and editorial writer Rachel Uranga.
