Why does everytime the Los Angeles Times makes an entertainment coverage personnel move, the positions always sound identical? The newspaper today announced Lisa Fung as Online Arts & Entertainment Editor to oversee multimedia coverage of all arts and entertainment, including Calendar, The Envelope and Company Town, as well as more than a dozen latimes.com blogs. In addition, Fung is supposed to develop new online properties. Fung has been with the LAT for more than 21 years and has overseen arts and culture coverage for the past nine years, including theater, architecture, classical music, dance and opera. Staffers tell me she’s humorless.
