The New York Times has announced that Carla Anne Robbins and David Shipley will both serve as deputy editorial page editors at the paper.
Robbins, who has been a member of the paper’s editorial board since July, will work with incoming editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal, both leading the editorial board and overseeing the Letters to the Editor and production staffs. Shipley, currently the Op-Ed page editor, will now also focus on improving the paper’s online editorial presence.
The paper has also announced that assistant editorial page editor Adam Cohen will take on more responsibilities, and will focus specifically on the editorial page’s coverage of local politics and other issues in New York.
“These appointments will better position us for the future as we continue to innovate our opinion report and expand our coverage in the digital world,” said Rosenthal in a statement. “Carla is extraordinarily smart, with a deep background in diplomatic reporting, Washington reporting and national security reporting. She has impressed us all with the strength of her arguments, the depth of her knowledge and her skill at initiating and guiding debate. David has demonstrated excellence as an editor, a manager and a leader. Most of what we in Editorial are doing online falls within the Op-Ed framework, and this part of our endeavor requires high-level attention and mastery of the online space, which David will very ably provide.”
