Regular characters on "All My Children" wore red gowns for the runway show, from designers including Catherine Malandrino, Prada, Carmen Marc Valvo and Betsey Johnson. The show was held to raise awareness for American Heart Month and Campbell's Soup's Go Red for Women campaign. But besides the charity aspect, it wouldn't be a real soap opera without a little drama — provided, of course, by Susan Lucci. Her character, Erica Kane, fielded questions from the editors — and then was arrested on the runway. — Amy Wicks
THE FOURTH MUSKETEER: The Los Angeles Times has tapped its fourth editor in three years, Russ Stanton, who formerly served as the The Times' innovation editor. Jack Klunder was named president, Los Angeles Times Newspaper, a new position. He will be in charge of The Times' core print business. And Bob Bellack is the new president, development and digital media. He will oversee acquisitions, partnerships and new mobile and digital growth efforts. Earlier this week, it was announced that up to 150 jobs would be cut from the Los Angeles Times Media Group.
Also Thursday, New York Times executive editor Bill Keller told his staff that about 100 of 1,332 newsroom jobs would be eliminated through buyouts, leaving unfilled positions vacant and eventually layoffs as needed. The Times has the largest newsroom head count of any of its peers, and has so far avoided any large-scale cuts, but the economic pressures facing the industry in general and the Times in particular are now taking their toll. — A.W.
