NY Times Promotes Cliff Levy

A well deserved move up the ladder.

The New York Times has promoted Cliff Levy to assistant editor. Levy most recently served as associate managing editor. He also oversaw editorial for the NYT Now app.

In a note announcing the news, Times executive editor Dean Baquet wrote Levy will “oversee the presentation of our report on all platforms: mobile, home page, watch. Cliff will also lead an expansion of our rewrite and curation capabilities so we can better leap on fast-breaking news and trends with context and sophistication.”

Levy has been with the Times since 1990. He is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a three-time winner of the George Polk Award.

Levy has previously served as the Times’ Moscow bureau chief and deputy Metro editor.
