Here's what Beutner will be paid as LA Times publisher - LA Observed
By Kevin Roderick
The website Footnoted noticed a late-Friday SEC filing by the newly formed company Tribune Publishing that details the compensation package for new Los Angeles Times publisher Austin Beutner. While being paid $675,000 a year base salary plus an annual bonus with the target of the same amount, Beutner will also start to build up a little ownership stake — a head start in case he ever wants to buy the Times. The employment agreement is for three years and provides that Beutner gets a year's base salary (and more) as severance if he is terminated or leaves for good case — "which may include a change in control."
