Filkins heads to The New Yorker

Dexter Filkins, Middle East correspondent for The New York Times, is leaving for a similar position at The New Yorker. According to WWD, Filkins will not be limited to just that area of the globe. David Remnick, editor at The New Yorker, says in the report, “I’m sure that he will get his fill of Afghanistan and Pakistan, but I’d also be very surprised if he didn’t travel far and wide—whether that’s the Middle East or Africa or India.”

Filkins will report to features director Daniel Zalewski.
