Tanya has been the newsroom’s director of editorial events at the Los Angeles Times since the spring of 2016.
In this position, she taps the newsroom's deep journalistic talent to expand on the L.A. Times’ long tradition of being at the center of the cultural, political and social conversation in California. She works closely with colleagues in the newsroom and on the L.A. Times business side to create new events, build up the existing festivals and conferences, and to find new ways to leverage The L.A. Times’ award-winning content to generate additional revenue for the paper.
Previously, she created a live events business for the Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization based in Austin. Before that, she spent seven years programming and producing public events for The New Yorker magazine, including the New Yorker Festival.
Before joining The New Yorker, she was an associate editor at Nylon magazine and an editorial assistant at Spin magazine.
