Spencer Kornhaber over at OCWeekly followed up on his previous cover story regarding The Voice of OC, the nonprofit news site helmed by former Register reporter Norberto Santana, Jr. Korhaber reports that:

The Voice of OC has taken at least one staffer from a publication close to its own heart.

The Voice of San Diego on Wednesday blogged about the departure of David Washburn, the nonprofit investigative site’s science reporter. He’ll be heading up to his former employer’s newborn Orange County counterpart –which is affiliated in name and spirit only–where he’ll serve as managing editor.

“It’s a great get for us,” Santana says. “It was something important to have in that one and two slot people who had a knowledge of each others’ working styles.”

This is a tremendous catch for Voice of OC. Read the rest of Korhaber’s post here.
