Dick Stevenson has been named Political Editor, a new desk at The New York Times. According to Politico, Stevenson will divide his time between D.C. and here. Here’s a snippet of the memo sent out to Times staffers:
As head of a newly formed Political Desk, Dick will be focused entirely on our campaign coverage. He will have two deputies, Gerry Mullany and Paul Volpe. In addition to overseeing the full-time political reporters and editors, Dick will be something of a collaborator-in-chief, closely coordinating with the Washington Bureau and other desks involved in political coverage.
