Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong is a legal immigrant who came to the U.S. from South Africa in the 1980’s, started a series of biotech companies, and became one of Los Angeles’ richest men, with wealth currently valued at $18 billion.  Dr. Soon-Shiong recently purchased the Los Angeles Times, on whose board he once served in an acrimonious role.  He has stated that he wants to create the “next generation of publishing,” which he describes as a blending of advanced technology with strong journalistic content.  We’ll look forward to watching his progress at the Times – a true challenge, but a welcome one.
