David Allen named Senior Editor of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

I've previously blogged about David Allen.

I've previously blogged about his employer, the Los Angeles Newspaper Group (part of MediaNews Group).

Now I get to blog about both of them together, because MediaNews Group announced that, effective today - April 1, 2009 - David Allen will take charge of one of its properties, having been named Senior Editor of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

Allen replaces Mike Brossart, who was named to this position a year ago. Brossart has accepted a new position that has not been identified at this time, but reading between the lines, it has something to do with Internet television.

Now I'm sure that some people wonder why David "show us the funny" Allen would be named to head the paper. However, it should be noted that Allen doesn't just write his column, but also does some general reporting for the paper.

Still, I suspect that things might change a little bit, based upon the press release.

David Allen Named Senior Editor of Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

DENVER, CO....David Allen, popular columnist at the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin (Ontario, CA), today was named Senior Editor at the newspaper.

Allen replaces Mike Brossart, who has been named Executive Vice President of Broadband Properties for the Los Angeles Newspaper Group.

"I've been watching David Allen for a long time," said MediaNews Group Chairman Dean Singleton. "I believe that Allen possesses the unique combination of skills to bring the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin into the 21st century. As a columnist and blogger with a focus on local events, David can reposition our paper to provide the type of local coverage that the national online services couldn't dream of delivering."

Allen himself stated, "I look forward to the challenges ahead, and believe that a greater emphasis on local restaurants and City Council meetings will help distinguish us from the pack. The goings-on at City Council meetings, if reported properly, will cause people to abandon TV reality shows and read the paper."

Allen assumes his duties immediately today, April 1, 2009.


And it looks like the Daily Bulletin has already modified its website to reflect the change.
