Sarah Cohen Joins The New York Times

Jim Romenesko is reporting that Sarah Cohen, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, is joining The New York Times. Cohen comes to the Times from Duke University, where she served as Knight Professor of the Practice of Journalism and Public Policy since 2009.

Prior to her time at Duke, Cohen was a veteran of The Washington Post, where she won the Pulizter for Investigative Reporting.

According to a Times memo, the addition of Cohen will be well received:

Sarah comes highly recommended by … about half the newsroom, with rave reviews from everyone in our CAR cluster, and from Aron Pilhofer, Jo Becker and former colleagues at other organizations. Several people threatened to kill us unless we hired her.

Cohen begins August 1.
