NYTimes names new tech editor
by Chris Roush
Glenn Kramon has officially been named tech editor of The New York Times, according to a memo from business editor Dean Murphy.
In the email memo, obtained by the New York Observer’s Kara Bloombargen-Smoke, Murphy writes:
He has overseen an impressive run in long-term enterprise, supervising or editing dozens of projects that have captivated readers, set the national debate and won a bevy of prizes — at last count nine Pulitzers among them. His standards are exacting and his enthusiasm for great journalism infectious. And he is a generous and collaborative colleague.
Glenn Kramon has spent the past seven years working his enterprise magic for multiple departments as assistant managing editor in New York. We are pleased to announce that he will now take his act on the road, moving to San Francisco as technology editor for Business Day.
This is an exciting moment for Bizday, as one of the paper’s most accomplished editors focuses his attention on one of our most vital and dynamic areas of coverage. It also a coming home, of sorts, for Glenn. He not only served as business editor, but also had a stint as tech editor back when the Internet was as much mystery as business model.
Tech is now a mainstay of business journalism, and thanks to Damon Darlin’s leadership, our tech team’s coverage is second to none. During his seven years, Damon has expanded the tech team, broadened its coverage to include the impact of technology on society and built Bits into a must-read blog. Damon will be moving to an assignment in New York — more on that later — while Glenn continues to expand tech’s presence both in print and online.
Glenn will begin his 2.0 mobile version later this winter once he clears through the stack of prize entries teetering on his desk. In the meantime, Damon will manage the transition.
