‘L.A. Times’ Columnist Sandy Banks
Proud to Be a Valley Girl and OK With Being Alone
During 34 years at the Los Angeles Times, Sandy Banks has been a reporter, editor, columnist, editorial writer, and director of the newspaper’s internship program. Before participating in a panel on the future of L.A. newspapers, she talked about a journalism job that was so bad it made covering a murder good, and the most underrated thing about life in the San Fernando Valley in the Zócalo green room.
