New York Times Announces Sudden Change in Executive Editor
It was announced just this afternoon that Jill Abramson, the executive editor for the New York Times, will be leaving her position. Taking over in her stead will be Dean Baquet, the managing editor of the paper. This is quite the historic change as Ms. Abramson was the first woman to fill this top job and now Mr. Baquet will be the first African American man to do so as well at the New York Times.
