NY Times to Name New Publisher Soon

A new head honcho.

The New York Times publisher, Arthur Sulzberger, has decided a new deputy publisher will be named within the next two years.

“I’ve been in my role as publisher for more than 20 years,” said Sulzberger, during an annual address. “I’ve hit my mid-60s, so it should come as no surprise that the task of choosing my successor has begun.”

“This is a formal process involving the Board of our company, senior management and the family trustees,” continued Sulzberger. “It is our intention to be as transparent as we can as this unfolds. It is also important to note—and I know it is a comfort to all of you—that the abiding commitment this family has for the mission of the Times is consistent across the generations.”
