Maureen Dowd Joins NY Times Mag

maureen dowd GMaureen Dowd, who has been with The New York Times since 1983, has a new gig at the paper: Staff writer for its magazine. Dowd will continue to pen her weekly op-ed column, a staple of the paper since 1995.

In a statement, Jake Silverstein, the Times Magazine’s editor, said Dowd was “a brilliant addition to our team.” “While I can’t disclose any specific assignments yet, I can reveal that Maureen’s subject matter for the magazine will range far afield from her current bailiwick of politics, foreign affairs, Hollywood, and edible marijuana,” added Silverstein.

Andy Rosenthal, editorial page editor of the Times said, “Maureen’s influence on our Op-Ed page can’t be overstated and I’m very happy that our readers will continue to hear her timely take on whatever the hot issue of the moment happens to be.”
