NewspapersMediabistro’s West Coast media blog, FishbowlLA, announced yesterday that it would go “on hiatus.” The blog’s co-editor, Richard Horgan, is leaving FishbowlLA for its New York-based cousin, FishbowlNY. FishbowlLA’s archives are also being folded into FishbowlNY, meaning FishbowlLA will cease to exist as a separate blog. They are, however, keeping their Twitter account active. (FishbowlLA)
