Subject: A Note From David HillerOctober 5, 2006
To all of my new colleagues:
By now you have heard that I have been named publisher, following my friend Jeff Johnson.
I hope to meet as many of you as possible in the days and weeks ahead, but wanted to introduce myself today even if email seems inadequate under the circumstances. Here's what I want you to know:
I read and love newspapers and have the highest regard for the Los Angeles Times, its great journalism, and the special role it plays in Southern California.
I have worked with many of you and know what a talented and creative team we have here.
I believe in the future of newspapers as the most trusted source of news and information in the communities we serve. To achieve that future we have to continue to change, because our readers, online users and advertising customers continue to change.
I have a lot to learn about the Times and our community, and with your help I will try to be a fast learner.
It is an honor to be able to come here and work with you
Thanks and I look forward to meeting you soon.
