The New York Times has announced that Adam Nossiter has been hired as a national correspondent based out of the Atlanta bureau. Nossiter?s correspondent coverage of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath for the Times was a large factor in his hiring, and the Times said that Nossiter would ?remain in New Orleans for the foreseeable future.?
Nossiter?s most recent job was as a reporter for the Associated Press. He worked at the Times? Metro Desk from 1995-6, and has also written for papers in Atlanta, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Anniston, Ala. In addition, Nossiter wrote two New York Times Notable books, one on the death of Medgar Evers and another on France?s wartime woes.
Nossiter?s father, Bernard Nossiter, was a United Nations bureau chief for The New York Times in the early 1980s, and was a reporter for The Washington Post for 24 years.
