Colleagues -

I'm pleased to announce that Kerry Cavanaugh has joined The Times' editorial board.
Kerry, who began work this week, was most recently a producer working with Warren Olney at KCRW on "To the Point" and "Which Way, L.A."

Before that, she spent a decade at the L.A. Daily News, where she was (at different times) a staff writer, an assistant city editor and an editorial writer. In addition to writing editorials on L.A. and California politics, budget and environmental issues, she wrote a twice-a-week front-page column on local government issues. As a metro reporter, she broke news on mass evictions due to condo conversions, on political influence by campaign donors and on failed housing policies. She won awards for both her columns and her editorials from the California Newspaper Publishers Association.

Kerry has also worked at the Bakersfield Californian. She's a graduate of New York University and Columbia Journalism School. She lives in Van Nuys with her husband and two children.

I'm delighted to welcome her to her new job.
