(AP) — The Los Angeles Times says veteran journalist Norman Pearlstine has been named its new executive editor.

The Times announced Monday that Pearlstine has been serving as an adviser to Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong (soon-shong), the newspaper’s new owner. Pearlstine was charged with creating a transition plan, which he will now help execute.

Soon-Shiong says the 75-year-old has decades of experience that will move the paper forward.

Pearlstine has spent 50 years in journalism with publications including Time Inc., Bloomberg News, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal.

He becomes the Times’ fourth top editor in less than a year — and its 18th since the newspaper began publishing in 1881. He succeeds Jim Kirk, whose seven-month tenure came during a period of corporate upheaval that culminated with the sale of the paper.
