I don’t like to do too many media-centric posts, but this is pretty crazy.
The LA Times is slashing its hockey coverage. According to BenMaller.com, the Times will no longer send beat reporters to all Kings/Ducks road games.
Over at LA Observed, Kevin Roderick reports Helene Elliott will no longer due a weekly NHL column. Instead, she’ll be a general columnist with an interest in hockey.
It’s never good when a major market shuts down its NHL coverage. Maybe the Times is hoping PJ will pick up the slack? This is a pretty huge opportunity for King and Duck bloggers.
