A lot of the advantages blogs offer will remain at the New York Times, Assistant Managing Editor Ian Fisher told Poynter in a phone call: “We’re going to continue to provide bloggy content with a more conversational tone,” he said. “We’re just not going to do them as much in standard reverse-chronological blogs.”
The Times is ending its blog The Lede, Poynter reported earlier Wednesday. That’s about the 10th blog the news organization has shuttered, Fisher said. And more will come. The Times has been “moving away from blogs over the past year and a half,” spokesperson Eileen Murphy told me.
