There goes our theory that senior citizens can’t get jobs. Norman Pearlstine, a long time editor at major newspapers and magazines, was chosen to bring the LA Times back from the dead.
The four time divorcée is a devoted and dedicated newspaper man. I would love to interview the new owner of the LA Times, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, a billionaire executive, to find out why he selected an older guy to lead in the digital age.
This could be very interesting. Maybe, this is the start of a new trend, older executives to tackle the difficult assignments. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?
