Arthur Sulzberger’s Son Joins New York Times Metro Desk

A.G. Sulzberger, son of Arthur Sulzberger, has a new home at the Metro section of the paper. According to a memo obtained by Gawker, Sulzberger will join the desk early next month.

Sam Sifton naturally had nothing but good things to say about  Sulzberger’s time at the National desk:

Arthur proved that opening a news bureau in Kansas City, Missouri, was not merely a good idea but a great one. He reveled in quirky, revealing stories (like an accounting of the last shop to process Kodachrome, or a profile of a man who, at 103, was the oldest still-serving federal judge in the country). But when big news came along, again and again he showed that there was no steadier hand on the desk.
