In 1997, she became editor of the Los Angeles Times Magazine, which she ran for 5 1/2 years.

The UCLA history graduate also served as daily Calendar editor and spent the last 2 1/2 years as the features editor for the California section.

Short assumes responsibility for many of the sections led by former Associate Editor Leo C. Wolinsky, who left Friday after 31 years at the paper.

She lives in Mar Vista with her husband and two children.
