LAT journo joins Marketing Land

Congratulations to Martin Beck, who will soon depart the LA Times to join Marketing Land as a social media correspondent. It should be a good fit for Beck, whose current role at LAT is Social Media and Reader Engagement editor.

"Some personal news to share: After 24 years with @latimes, I'm leaving to cover social media for @sengineland & @marketingland," Beck shared on Twitter.

Deputy mobile editor Laura Davis responded to the news by revealing this cake, calling it "[a]n appropriate farewell cake for @MartinBeck."

In the meantime, Beck is on a nostalgic twitpic tour of LAT-related features under the hashtag #ThingsThatIWillMiss:

"Our gilded phone booths," he tweeted, as well as "This walk to work."
