Jonathan Landman, the culture editor for The New York Times since 2009, is leaving the paper. According to a memo obtained by Poynter, Landman is accepting a buyout from the Times.
“We all know that the newsroom has to reduce its costs,” wrote Landman. “No less urgent is its responsibility to cultivate a new generation of leaders. My continued presence would help accomplish neither. So it’s time to go.”
Landman has been with the Times for 26 years.
