New York Times Looks Outside for New CEO to Throw Millions At

The search for the new CEO of The New York Times Company has begun. Bloomberg reports that the Times has hired Spencer Stuart — a recruiting firm that his been used by companies such as AOL and Hewlett-Packard — to find the replacement for Janet Robinson.

The early word is that the lucky person won’t come from inside the Times, which is bad news for Chief Advertising Officer Denise Warren and Times Media Group’s President and General Manager, Scott Heekin-Canedy.

If you’re wondering why we say the new CEO will be “lucky,” you obviously haven’t been paying attention to The Sweet Life O’ Robinson.
