If you’re curious about what the revamped “Week in Review” section will look like for The New York Times when it gets an overhaul, today The Huffington Post offers up some information.

The relaunch is supposedly planned for next month, and a couple of the changes include a possible name change to “Sunday Review,” and more space for columnists. There’s also some juicy gossip mixed in with this news:

Times watchers see the new section as an opportunity for [Andy] Rosenthal to assume a bigger role within the paper. Rosenthal, a favorite of Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., is on the shortlist – along with managing editor Jill Abramson and Washington bureau chief Dean Baquet – to succeed executive editor Bill Keller when he hits mandatory retirement age in about three years.

We should have titled this post “A Power Play on Sunday.”
