Kelley Joins OVN Newsroom

Veteran Los Angeles Times reporter Daryl Kelley has joined the Ojai Valley News as a contributing writer.
Kelley, 57, retired from the Times last year after 21 years and four decades of writing for a living. He will contribute stories on a variety of topics, and he welcomes your suggestions.
Kelley has won more than two dozen individual awards for journalism excellence, and has been nominated individually for the Pulitzer Prize three times. He participated in the Times’ coverage of the Los Angeles riots in 1992, the Northridge earthquake in 1994 and the Southland wildfires of 2003 — all of which received Pulitzer Prizes for breaking news.
“Daryl’s peerless skills and great insight into this community in which he has lived for many years will benefit all the people of the Ojai Valley, but especially the subscribers of the Ojai Valley News,” said Bret Bradigan, OVN editor and publisher. “It’s a rare confluence of talent and opportunity for us, and a great reflection on Ojai that so many talented people choose to live and work here.”
A graduate of California State University-Fresno, Kelley holds degrees in journalism and history. He also has a lifetime teaching credential for social science, English and journalism.

I look forward to seeing Kelley's work in the OVN. He's a great reporter.

What is happening to the LA Times is a horrorshow for anyone who cares about journalism, but that's a topic for another day.
