New York Times’ Scott Heekin-Canedy to Retire, Role Will Be Eliminated

Scott Heekin-Canedy is retiring from The New York Times Company, effective December 30. Heekin-Canedy has been with the Times since 1992; serving as president and general manager since 2004.

Heekin-Canedy was one of the forces behind the Times implementing its paywall, which has been a success. In a note to staff, Arthur Sulzberger said losing Heekin-Canedy meant that “we are losing a great talent who has seen us through a very difficult economic period.”

According to the Times, Heekin-Canedy’s position will be eliminated when he steps aside.
