Leeds Surfaces At Buzznet

Former New York Times and Los Angeles Times entertainment reporter Jeff Leeds has joined online company Buzznet as editor in chief, overseeing the editorial strategy for its portfolio of music Web sites, Leeds announced via e-mail Oct. 9.

Leeds returns to Los Angeles after moving to the Big Apple, only to get caught earlier this year in the NYT’s efforts to downsize.
