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.
“Media reporters will continue to write for BizDay, Culture and other sections, with Mr. Media himself, David Carr, anchoring the Monday business report,” wrote the Times’ business editor, Dean Murphy, in a memo. “More broadly, the media team will benefit from greater interaction and crosspollination with reporters and editors from tech, DealBook and the other clusters — and vice versa. In short, we’ll see collaboration, elevation and innovation among a whole new mix of talented reporters and editors.”
