LA Voice Goes Red State
Tuesday Reed announced that he turned the blog over to Scott Olin Schmidt - best known as the chief blogger at Boi from Troy and Ryan Knoll, Schmidt's business partner. Schmidt and Knoll are both Republicans. LA Voice is made up of a stable of bloggers of every stripe but it is hoped that Schmidt and Knoll will bring some balance to the otherwise left leaning blog.
In his goodbye message, Mack - with whom we've maintained a love/hate relationship with over the years - made sure to give major kudos to blogosphere bad boys Kevin Roderick and Sean Bonner (gag). Mack also admits to being a consultant for the Metroblogging empire which may help explain this post.
We wish Mack well in his future endeavors and are certain he will be back blogging somewhere soon (Hey Mack the invitation is open for your Sister City account). We are also quite excited about the direction Scott and Ryan will take LA Voice and are every bit confident they will produce a quality property. LA Voice - along with the Sister City, Martini Republic, LA Observed and LAist are among the go to few blogs in LA that are up to the moment and places you can turn to for the latest news. We hope LA Voice continues in that mold.
