I’m busy on a project, but I thought I’d pass along this in the meantime: Los Angeles freelance journalist Ross Johnson who now and then covered the Hollywood beat has gone to work for Sitrick & Co. A while ago, he used to work for the Los Angeles Daily Journal legal newspaper, and in recent years he’s done the occasional piece for The New York Times. Last March, he started a blog about the Pellicano scandal and posted intermittently. From what I can tell, his final freelance article, about publisher Wendy McCaw, was for LA Weekly before moving into flackery. In response to my query, Johnson replied by email: “As usual, Nikki’s sources are damn good!” (Hmm, is he suddenly trying to flatter me because he’s now in PR? As if that’s gonna work… )
