Trish Hall has just been named the new Op-Ed Editor for the New York Times. Hall most recently worked as Assistant Managing Editor for the paper, where she was responsible for the Dining, Home, Thursday Styles, Travel, Real Estate and Sunday Style sections.
The move will be effective Febuary 7th. Andy Rosenthal had this to say in a memo to staffers:
I can’t think of anyone better suited for a job that has always been hard, requiring a broad range of knowledge and interests, as well as editing, managing and diplomatic skills. It is going to be an even bigger, more fun, and harder job now, as we seek to expand and develop our Opinion report.
