Sara Yasin has been named a managing editor for the Los Angeles Times
Yasin is currently managing editor of BuzzFeed News, where she has been instrumental in building new audiences and experimenting effectively to widen story consumption across all platforms. During her tenure as managing editor, BuzzFeed News won its first Pulitzer Prize, in 2021, for International Reporting for an innovative series on China’s mass detention of Muslims.
Yasin started at BuzzFeed in 2015 on the social media team and rose through the ranks in what became the News Curation team — a combination of the mobile, homepage and social units. She was named managing editor in 2020 and, in that role, promoted a culture of experimentation, built a system to improve communication among the various teams in the newsroom and worked closely with editors to smartly position and package BuzzFeed’s biggest enterprise stories.
In making the announcement, Times Executive Editor Kevin Merida said that Yasin will oversee the daily news operation, reporting into him, beginning April 18.
