The New York Times has assigned two editors to new positions.
Charles Strum has been named associate managing editor for the night side, while Paul Winfield has been named news editor.
Strum, who joined the Times in 1979, most recently served as obituaries editor, a post he has held for five years. Before that, he edited the Public Lives column and held several positions on the Metro desk, including New Jersey bureau chief, and has performed adjunct editing work on several other news desks.
Winfield has served as deputy news editor since 1994. He spent 19 years working in the Times’ sports department before moving on to the Metro desk and the news desk.
Strum will start in his new position once his replacement has been announced. Winfield’s appointment is effective immediately.
