After five-plus years as a business writer, Joe Nocera is making a move at The New York Times.  Jeff Bercovici reports that Nocera will join Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman by contributing to NYT’s op-ed page.  The move makes Nocera the Times’s first new, full-time op-ed columnist since Ross Douthat replaced Bill Kristol in 2009.

Prior to joining the Grey Lady in 2005, Nocera spent over a decade as editorial director at Fortune magazine.  He has won two Gerald Loeb awards and three John Hancock awards to mark his achievements in business writing.  Nocera also was a Pulitzer Prize finalist this past year.
