To: The Staff
From: Megan Garvey, Deputy Managing Editor
I’m very excited to announce that Alexandra Le Tellier will join the newsroom’s digital team as a senior editor, working closely with our teams in entertainment and features to promote their coverage on our site and in social media.
Alexandra is known for her boundless energy and her keen attention to detail (and that’s understating it). During 4½ years in Opinion, she played a key role in increasing readership and engagement many times over. She organized special digital projects such as The 21st Century Citizen, which explored the meaning of U.S. citizenship in today’s world, and Roadshare, which looked at whether L.A.’s drivers and cyclists will ever be able to share the city’s streets.
Alexandra has been with The Times since 2007. She has a passion for arts and entertainment – particularly movies and television – as well as wellness and home design. She was the deputy editor of Brand X and managing editor of the L.A. edition of Metromix, an entertainment website and print weekly. She also worked for LA.com and freelanced for Los Angeles Magazine, Variety and People. She grew up in L.A. and is a 2002 graduate of Emerson College.
She will report to me.
