Film producer Brian Grazer will be a guest editor of the Los Angeles Times Sunday commentary section, becoming the first of four guest editors a year.
The newspaper said Thursday that future editors of its Current section will be drawn from the worlds of politics, business, culture, entertainment and sports.
“We asked Brian Grazer to kick off the program because we wanted to tap into his creative vision,” said Andres Martinez, editorial page editor of the Times. “His career is powered by an endless curiosity, and we thought it would be fun to hitch a ride along the way.”
Grazer’s responsibilities for the March 25 edition will include choosing topics and assigning them to writers.
“One big interest of mine is the impact of technological and cultural change, and my hope is that by asking a really interesting group of writers and artists to focus on this subject, readers will gain a better understanding of the world we live in,” Grazer said.
