Clark Hoyt The New NYT Public Editor

From the NYT:

    The New York Times today named its next public editor, Clark Hoyt, a former Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and editor who oversaw the Knight Ridder newspaper chain’s coverage that questioned the Bush administration’s case for the Iraq war.

    Mr. Hoyt, 64, was the Washington editor at Knight Ridder from 1999 until the company was sold last year. His responsibilities included overseeing the Washington news bureau, the chain’s foreign bureaus and the wire service that the company ran jointly with the Tribune Company.

    Before that, he had served as Knight Ridder’s Washington bureau chief, and then as vice president for news, with responsibility for hiring and promoting top editors at the company’s newspapers, which included The Miami Herald, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The San Jose Mercury-News and The Detroit Free Press.
