As the Los Angeles Times and its readership continue to shrink, and owner Tribune Company pulls out of bankruptcy, the paper has consistently pushed to bolster its editorial ranks in its most lucrative section in a company town. Thus Arts & Entertainment Assistant Managing Editor John Corrigan has announced three new staff hires.

 A journalism graduate of Biola University, Glenn is a longtime member of the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. and has written and reviewed for publications including Variety, the Associated Press, the Los Angeles Daily News and MSN Movies.

 --Meredith Blake. Another Times contributor, Meredith is joining the team as a New York-based entertainment writer. Meredith has built a strong fan base with her smart and witty recaps of the late-night TV talk shows and “Mad Men” episodes on our Show Tracker blog. As a full-time staff writer, Meredith will help us bolster our coverage of the television and media industries.

 Meredith has a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown and a master’s from NYU. She previously worked as a freelance Web producer for abcnews.com, providing Web content for “Nightline,” “20/20” and “Good Morning America.” She has been a regular contributor to the New Yorker’s literary blog, and has written for publications including  Rolling Stone, the Atlantic and the Paris Review. Meredith, who starts Aug. 6, will report to television editor Martin Miller.

 --Mark Olsen.  Few people know the independent film scene like Mark Olsen. For the past three years, he’s written the Indie Focus film feature for Sunday Calendar and The Envelope, along with contributing to our coverage of the Sundance, SXSW and Toronto film festivals. As a full-time staff writer, Mark will be able to report other news and features on this important aspect of the movie business, and help bolster our coverage of documentaries and foreign films.

 Mark has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and a master’s in cinema studies from NYU.  He has been a contributing editor to Film Comment, and has written on film for publications including the New York Times, Vanityfair.com and L.A.
