Ousted NYT editor lands at Harvard

By Brian Stelter, CNN

"What's next for me? I don't know," Jill Abramson said during a college commencement address last month.

That was one week after she was fired from her executive editor post at The New York Times.

Now she's answering her question: Abramson will be teaching at her alma mater, Harvard University, in the fall of 2014 and the spring of 2015.

She will be a visiting lecturer in the Department of English, teaching undergraduates about narrative nonfiction, the university announced Thursday. Abramson graduated from Harvard College in 1976.

Abramson breaks silence about NYT firing

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Jill Abramson, who was fired as executive editor of The New York Times last week, doesn't know what she'll do next. But she knows she won't be getting her tattoo of the newspaper's logo removed.

Abramson spoke for the first time about her abrupt dismissal during a commencement address at Wake Forest University Monday morning.

She joked about the timing of the address. "I think the only real news here today is your graduation from this great university!" she told the graduates. She then spoke at length about the topic of resilience, citing her own experiences at The New York Times.

Abramson did not speak an ill word about The New York Times or its publisher, Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., who forced her out after fewer than three years as executive editor. She praised the newspaper and said "it was the honor of my life to lead the newsroom."
