Longtime Editor Leaves San Diego CityBeat

Longtime Editor Leaves San Diego CityBeat


David Rolland, editor, San Diego CityBeat


San Diego CityBeat is not going away, but it is definitely undergoing a change.

The man who helped launch the alternative weekly news magazine in 2002 is leaving.

Editor David Rolland, who has been a frequent guest on KPBS Midday Edition and the Editor's Roundtable, is wrapping up his tenure at CityBeat.

Rolland is leaving the publication for a position at the office of California State Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins (D-San Diego).

CityBeat's associate editor and reporter Kelly Davis is also moving on, but will continue reporting on juvenile criminal justice issues on a freelance basis.

Next week's March 18 issue will be Rolland's last.
