Top editor at the New York Times is leaving

By Brian Stelter, CNN

In a move that stunned the media world, the New York Times announced Wednesday that it was replacing executive editor Jill Abramson with her No. 2 in the newsroom, Dean Baquet.

Abramson was named executive editor about three years ago. New York Times (NYT)publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. told employees at a staff meeting that he chose a new editor "because I believe that new leadership will improve some aspects of the management of the newsroom," according to his prepared remarks, which were provided by a spokeswoman.

Sulzberger went on to say, "You will understand that there is nothing more I am going to say about this, but I want to assure all of you that there is nothing more at issue here."

The spokeswoman confirmed that Abramson will not remain at the newspaper. Baquet, who has been Abramson's deputy since 2011, will become executive editor immediately.
