LOS ANGELES—Fred Muir, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Times, is joining Fleishman-Hillard International as a senior vice president in the Los Angeles public affairs practice.
 
Muir joins in the wake of several high-profile departures from Fleishman’s L.A. office, including Steve Sugarman, head of the public affairs practice, who left to launch his own firm, and Samantha Sackin, head of the consumer practice, who joined Rogers & Associates.
 
Muir, a member of three Pulitzer Prize-winning project teams at the Times, covered the City of Los Angeles, California water policy—including the Department of Water & Power—and the banking industry. He was most recently entertainment editor in the Times’ business section, where he covered the film, television and music industries.
 
“We are excited about Fred Muir joining Fleishman-Hillard’s public affairs group,” said Doug Dowie, general manager of the office. “Fred’s range of experience, from covering City Hall and water issues, to overseeing coverage of Southern California’s signature entertainment industry, broadens Fleishman-Hillard’s industry-leading capabilities.”
 
Before joining the Times in 1987, Muir was a staff writer in the Los Angeles bureau of The Wall Street Journal.
