The following comes from an August 23 story posted on the website for the Catholic News Agency.
Catholic News Agency’s editor-in-chief, David Scott, has been tapped to lead the communications operations of the nation’s largest archdiocese.
Archbishop José Gomez has appointed Scott as his vice chancellor for communications. Scott will “direct and coordinate all internal and external communications for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,” according to a statement released by the archdiocese Aug. 20….
A veteran Catholic journalist, Scott has served as CNA’s editor-in-chief since 2010. He helped guide Catholic News Agency during a period of growth that saw the agency expand its coverage of national and international affairs and cultural issues.
During his tenure, the agency launched a subscription service for diocesan newspapers and was selected as the exclusive newswire provider for the National Catholic Register, the nation’s premier Catholic newsweekly. Scott also helped the agency establish new digital and multimedia operations and expand its Rome bureau.
“This appointment is an honor,” Scott said. “Archbishop Gomez is one of the great leaders in the Church today. I’m excited to help him communicate his vision for the new evangelization and the power and beauty of the Gospel.”
