The Los Angeles Times ousted its editor-publisher and several top newsroom executives Monday in what its parent company says is a shake-up aimed at moving one of the nation's flagship newspapers more quickly into the digital age while bolstering its Washington coverage and other reporting.

According to The Times, tronc on Monday also fired Managing Editor Marc Duvoisin, Deputy Managing Editor for digital media Megan Garvey and Assistant Managing Editor for investigations Matt Doig. "Ross isn't coming in to manage further down-sizing", Dearborn told the LA Times.

He calls Levinsohn "a visionary and innovative executive" with "long-standing ties to Southern California and passion for news" as well as "deep experience in technology and media". Many were surprised he hadn't been given the permanent job by the Yahoo! board back then. - Levinsohn did what new big-city publishers should do: exulted in the opportunity.

More cuts at the Los Angeles Times: Editor, other esteemed staff out! "I'm proud of the work we've done", Maharaj wrote, according to story. I've been lucky to have worked with some awesome companies, legendary storytellers, world-class journalists, incredible co-workers and media titans who have helped shape our industry.

But Moon said: "I will prevent war at all cost". "They should not be seen in any way as a provocative exercise", Ms Payne said. North Korea has long denounced the drills as a war rehearsal for a northern invasion, reports Yonhap News Agency.

Jim Kirk, former editor-in-chief of the Chicago Sun-Times, was named interim executive editor. His portfolio includes the majority of the digital assets for Tronc.

He now takes the reins of eight of Tronc's local newspaper properties. The company also reported an increase in digital subscribers, fueled largely by new digital-only subscribers to the L.A. Times.

The announcement comes on the heels of tronc's second quarter earnings report, which saw revenue fall 8.6 percent in the second quarter of 2017 compared with the same period a year ago. In the second quarter Tronc's revenue declined 8.6%. "Advertising revenues for troncX declined by 9%".

Like many publications, it has struggled to move its subscriber and ad bases from print to digital. "The Los Angeles Times has incredible journalists, and there's never been a more important time to produce incredible journalism and get it out on all these platforms".

The leadership shakeup at the Los Angeles Times is accompanied by changes throughout Tronc, which owns newspapers including the Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
