At VVM’s LA Weekly, a notable choice for editor

Monday, October 31, 2011

imageVillage Voice Media’s LA Weekly, one of SF Weekly’s bigger siblings, lost its editor last week when former LA Times hand Drex Heikes, who won a Pulitzer as editor of the Las Vegas Sun, announced he was moving on. And his replacement is . . . veteran VVMer Sarah Fenske, whose elevation is described this way by USC’s Neon Tommy website:

Last week, the owner of Village Voice Media Michael Lacey hired his former girlfriend Sarah Fenske to fill the recently vacated LA Weekly editor slot. When Fenske was a columnist at the Phoenix News Times more than two years ago, she maintained a romantic relationship with Lacey, Fenske told Neon Tommy Friday.

Despite their romance, Fenske, 34, said her close relationship with Lacey had nothing to do with her appointment as editor-in-chief of the Weekly.
