The evolution of reporters

Beat changes among the SGV Tribune and the Pasadena Star-News. This memo came in today from managment:

Please join me in wishing Star-News reporter Todd Ruiz the best as he embarks on a new chapter in his life. Today is Todd’s last day with us and he will be missed. Todd has done some really fine work since transferring to SGVN from the Bulletin. His stories on the Tommy Bowman case were among the best I’ve seen in a long time and he stayed on top of the Pasadena City Hall beat both in print and online.

Starting Monday, Tribune reporter Fred Ortega will move to Pasadena to take over the City Hall beat. Fred also will continue in his role as SGVN political reporter and will remain involved in special projects for the group. Please join me in congratulating Fred on his new role.
