Steve Clow returns to editing staff on California desk

December 4, 2008 | 10:53 am

California Editor David Lauter makes the announcement in a memo to Times staff:

Steve Clow, a gifted and careful editor, has moved back to Metro and will have broad responsibilities for helping me with oversight of this large and complicated department. He's among the people I will turn to for running the place when I'm away and for advice and counsel on a wide variety of Metro stories, projects and personnel issues. He'll be someone I turn to regularly for editing of major stories as they develop. And, not least, he will handle a group of reporters -- he's already taken on several.

Steve has worked in National, Metro, Features and, most recently, Sports. He has moved back and forth among the departments several times for good reason: His is one of the first names that always comes up when department heads search for excellent, experienced editing. In each of his assignments, he has improved the work of his reporters, shepherded many a story onto Page 1 and developed a well-deserved reputation as among the most congenial of colleagues.

Please join me in welcoming Steve back aboard.
