The New York Times has made several changes to its media desk in the wake of buyouts and David Carr’s death.
The moves include Bill Brink upped to media editor; Connor Ennis moved to deputy media editor; John Koblin shifted to TV reporter; Sydney Ember to the advertising and marketing beat; and Sarah Lyall will add media reporting to her other duties.
Brink had most recently served as deputy media editor. Ennis moves to the media desk from the BizDay weekend edition. Koblin was previously a Styles section reporter. Ember was most recently penning the DealBook morning newsletter. Lyall covers a variety of beats for the Times, including sports and culture.
In the memo announcing the moves, business editor Dean Murphy and deputy business editor Peter Lattman did not mention a new media columnist to replace Carr. Perhaps because those are big shoes to fill.
