John Arthur and John Montorio, two top editors at The Los Angeles Times, have been named managing editors of the newspaper.
Arthur, currently an assistant managing editor who oversees the front page, will head the news department, the Times said. Montorio, the newspaper’s associate editor, will oversee the features department.
“These two new dynamic leaders will play a pivotal role in making us a more effective organization while enhancing our relevancy to readers and users in Southern California,” Times Editor James O’Shea said in a statement.
The newspaper’s last managing editor, Doug Frantz, resigned last month to become the Middle East and Africa bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal.
