Texas journalist packs for LA

Aug 01, 2014

The Texas Tribune is losing its managing editor: Brandi Grissom will soon depart to join the LA Times as enterprise editor.

"So thrilled to report I'll be moving to the @latimes as enterprise editor. And so sad to leave the fabulous folks @TexasTribune," Grissom shared on Twitter.

"CA stealing TX jobs!" the Tribune's Reeve Hamilton tweeted in mock dismay.

"So sad for us, but so happy for her. @brandigrissom going to @latimes!" colleague Terri Langford responded, adding the hashtag #yallaresomeluckysumsabitches.

We'd also like to call your attention to this amazing gif that the Texas Tribune prepared in homage to Grissom.
