Michele E. Buttelman has been named the features and entertainment editor of The Signal.

She is responsible for Lifestyle, Food, Family, Healthy Living, Zone for Kids, Home, About Town and Senior Living pages in The Signal.

Jim Walker, editor of Escape, will report to Buttelman.

Buttelman started with The Signal in 1999 and served as Escape editor from February 2000 to October 2007. She is an award-winning columnist and previously worked for The Los Angeles Times.

Jim Walker has been named editor of Escape, The Signal's Arts and Entertainment Weekly.

A resident of the SCV since 1985, and "having dabbled in about every area of entertainment there is," Walker has been with The Signal since October of 2006. During that time he has served as features writer, features editor and, most recently, Webcast producer.

As editor of Escape, Walker intends to improve the publication's presence in print and on the Web, making it the go-to entertainment guide for SCV residents.

"I want people to make Escape their first-read on Friday mornings, to Jones for it, unable to have a weekend without it," he said.
