New York Times Company CEO Janet Robinson Stepping Down

Breaking: The New York Times CEO and president Janet Robinson is stepping down from her post at the end of the month. The Times reports Robinson will be replaced on an interim basis by publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr.

“It is with mixed emotions that I write to let you know that I am retiring from the New York Times Company,” Robinson told staffers in an email, The New York Times reports.  

Sulzberger will serve as chief executive, while Robinson, 61, will stay on with the Times as a paid consultant for one year.

The company said that it would begin an internal and external search to find a new chief executive.

Robinson joined The New York Times Company in 1983, becoming CEO in 2004.

Along with The New York Times, the company owns The Boston Globe and The International Herald Tribune.
