Betty Cortina Out at ‘Latina,’ Former ‘Vibe’ Editor Mimi Valdes In

Latina editorial director Betty Cortina has been telling staffers today that she's leaving the magazine, and she's set to be replaced by powerhouse former Vibe editor Mimi Valdes, a source tells Daily Intel. "It seems amicable," says the spy. "There was a new CEO hired in April, and there have been lots of changes since then. But this is the big one." Latina has a readership of 2 million. As far as we know, Valdes hasn't been up to much since she and much of her staff were rudely booted from Vibe last summer, so this is a coup. As is blogging real news after 6 p.m.!
