Nancie Clare was named editor of LA, the Los Angeles Times Media Group's monthly Sunday magazine, in the latest in a series of management changes.
Effective immediately, Clare replaces Annie Gilbar, who shepherded the magazine's relaunch in September 2008, the group said Monday. After serving as editor in chief for the last year, Gilbar is leaving the company.
Clare also participated in the relaunch and was promoted to executive editor in January after serving as deputy editor. She has held a number of publishing posts, including as managing editor of WomensWallStreet.com and editor in chief of Ticketmaster's events and sports guide supplements.
She will report to Los Angeles Times Editor Russ Stanton and will oversee the creative direction of the magazine while supervising the editorial staff and multimedia content. She also will work closely with the magazine's publisher, Steven Gellman, who assumed his post in August.
The magazine was moved Monday under The Times' editorial department, which is wrapping up a reorganization. The change brings all the company's newsrooms -- including latimes.com, Spanish-language weekly Hoy, the six local Times Community Newspapers and the multimedia outlet Brand X -- under Stanton's supervision.
