Los Angeles Times edits masthead

John Arthur and Davan Maharaj are promoted

The Los Angeles Times has made some more changes on the masthead under the direction of newly appointed editor Russ Stanton.

John Arthur, who was in the running for the editor post that went to Stanton in February, moves from managing editor to executive editor, overseeing the paper’s front page, the copy and design desks and the photo department. He’ll also work closely with Stanton on newsgathering strategies, deployment considerations and personnel decisions.

Business section editor Davan Maharaj has been upped to managing editor, overseeing foreign, national, metro, sports, business and science departments, whose section editors will report to him. Maharaj is also tasked with helping to integrate the paper’s print and Web editorial operations.

Stanton said in a memo to staffers that Maharaj’s replacement in the Business section will be named in a couple of weeks.
