New York Times to Offer Financial Advice in Special ‘Your Money’ Section

The New York Times announced yesterday that it will publish a special news section on personal finance, titled “Your Money: A Financial Tune-Up.” The series, coupled with online features and a live panel discussion, will take place from March 25 to 31.

Times business writers Ron Lieber, Tara Siegel Bernard and Jennifer Saranow Schultz will contribute to the section. Lieber will also moderate a panel discussion featuring personal-finance author Jean Chatzky, Princeton economics professor Burt Malkiel and Consumerist blog manager Ben Popken.

According to its 2009 10-K filing, The New York Times Co. ended the year with $420 million in underfunded pension obligations and $769 million in debt.
