New York Times Promotes Editors, in Change of Leadership Structure

By: Ravi Somaiya | New York Times

The executive editor of The New York Times announced broad changes to the newspaper’s leadership Wednesday, replacing titles that had been used for decades and promoting several senior editors.

The editor, Dean Baquet, will retire the job of managing editor, traditionally the second-most senior newsroom position at The Times, and a job he once held, and promote four senior editors — Susan Chira, Janet Elder, Matt Purdy and Ian Fisher — to the new title of deputy executive editor, he wrote in a memo to the staff on Wednesday. A fifth editor, Tom Bodkin, will be given the title of creative director, a position equal to the four deputy executive editors.
