Steven Mikulan, whose recent departure from the LA Weekly was loudly lamented as a great loss to Los Angeles journalism, has landed a gig. That didn’t take long. Mikulan will be writing a new blog for The Wrap called “L.A. Noir” which will “cover the intersection of celebrity, crime, local media, politics and the entertainment industry.”
Josh Dickey, formerly the west coast deputy entertainment editor of the Associated Press, will join The Wrap staff as deputy editor. From the press release:
For the last 10 years, Dickey has steered the AP’s entertainment coverage from a features-driven approach to more news-driven reporting. As deputy editor, he will help shape the site’s news coverage, said Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman.
