The Los Angeles Times has named a veteran journalist responsible for bringing a print-centric Forbes magazine into the digital era.

Lewis D’Vorkin will start his new gig at the Times on Nov. 1. In addition to overhauling Forbes, he had worked at AOL, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and the New York Times. He first clocked time at Forbes between 1996 and 2000, then returned at 2010 to usher in a series of digital changes to the magazine.

Now, D’Vorkin is hoping to bring his experience to Los Angeles’s paper of record. Joining Larry to discuss this appointment is longtime LA Times observer Ken Doctor.


Ken Doctor, media analyst who focuses on the transformation of consumer media in the digital age; author of “Newsonomics: Twelve New Trends That Will Shape the News You Get” (St. Martin’s Press, 2010)
