Peter Lattman Named Deputy Business Editor of NY Times

The New York Times has named Peter Lattman deputy business editor. Lattman most recently served as media editor. In his new role, Lattman will continue to oversee media news while also contributing to general business news.

In short, we’ll see collaboration, elevation and innovation among a whole new mix of talented reporters and editors.”
