More evidence that the bestest job of all on a newspaper is that of publisher's son. At the Times, you get to be in charge of the thinking, so if anyone sees you staring off into space, he'll say, "Doesn't he ever stop working?"

Dear Colleagues,

As part of my strategic push to have the newsroom take a leading role in developing new ways to present our journalism in digital forms and to create new products, I have made various changes in the structure and leadership of the newsroom. My goal has been to find the best digital talent in the newsroom and appoint people to very senior editing roles that report directly to Dean and me.
Arthur Gregg Sulzberger will also take a leave from metro to be the editor in charge of a new ideas task force, which will function as the newsroom’s version of a skunk-works team, a creative team that will think up and propose new ways to expand our news offerings digitally. He, too, has displayed impressive creative inventiveness and leadership as a national correspondent and as a Metro reporter and editor.
More to come.

Fondly, Jill
[Capital New York]
