New York Times Company Could Name CEO by September

The New York Times Company released its 2Q report this morning, and buried among the bad news — the company posted a loss again, down $88 million because of decreasing ad dollars — was a small note about that CEO search:

A person familiar with the company’s thinking, who could not discuss private meetings publicly, said the board had made significant progress on the chief executive search and could announce a successor as early as September.

So Times reporters have insiders at the Times dishing on the Times. Got it.

The Times has been looking for someone to fill the diamond-encrusted shoes of Janet Robinson since late last year, and so far, we’ve only heard two names pop up — Gordon Crovitz and Alan Spoon. Will either be the company’s new CEO? Hard to say, but we’ll keep you posted.
