Livernois named Monterey Herald editor

Joe Livernois, a 24-year newsroom veteran at the Monterey Herald, has been named executive editor, succeeding Carolina Garcia, who moved on to the Los Angeles Daily News. Livernois, 54, said he wants the newspaper to be "courageous and aggressive," attributes he said were fostered under Garcia. Livernois started at The Herald as a copy editor in 1984 after stints at the Carmel Pine Cone and North County News, a former weekly paper. He has been city editor at The Herald since 2005. He's a former chief of the paper's Salinas bureau and has covered a wide variety of news beats. He's even written a humor column for The Herald. (Photo credit: Monterey Herald)
