In a move that suggests the growing importance of blogs to the Gray Lady’s bottom line, the talented Jennifer 8. Lee of the New York Times moves from the city section to full-time duties on The City Room Blog. From the salmon-colored weekly:

“Ms. Lee, who has written some of the Times’ most widely-read conceptual pieces in the past few years, recently completed her book on the history of Chinese food in the United States, which is due out in March. She will start filing to City Room, which is led by reporter Sewell Chan and edited by metro deputy Patrick LaForge, today.”
