It's been a long and interesting journey since I started in January of 2005, hardly knowing that I was creating something that would play a part in shaping the conversation about life in Downtown.

We took a big step forward this summer with the August launch of our print edition, blogdowntown Weekly, and today we're looking to make another.

We're looking for someone to join our small team as Editor on take on primary responsibility for day-to-day content both online and in print. From the job description that we just posted:

Our ideal candidate is someone with a keen sense for what makes a good story across a wide range of topics. You should also have the ability to balance the desire to do deep reporting with the need to keep content flowing.

Work will involve writing content, preparing the day's budget and editing stories produced by staff and freelancers.

It's a role that I've played as we've developed, and certainly one that I will stay involved in as Publisher. blogdowntown has a lot of different things going on these days, and we really need someone on-board who can make sure that the content for and blogdowntown Weekly never takes a backseat just because I happen to be sitting in a meeting.

This is a paid, full-time position. We're looking for someone who is ready to put the hours in to help us build something new and great for Downtown Los Angeles.
