Smale has been with the Times since 1998. She most recently served as executive editor of the International Herald Tribune (which is now called the International New York Times).

Dick Stevenson has been named the New York Times’ chief Washington correspondent. Stevenson has been with the paper since 1985, when he joined as a business reporter. He was a correspondent with the Times’ Los Angeles and London bureaus before settling in Washington in 1996.
“If you’ve written a New York Times story with a Washington dateline in the last seven years, you have almost certainly benefited from the wisdom of Dick Stevenson,” wrote Washington bureau chief David Leonhardt, in a memo. ”He knows policy and politics inside out and has a rare talent for turning subjects into stories. Even as an editor, when he was spending most of his time improving the stories that the rest of us wrote, he found time to write standout Washington analysis.”
Leonhardt’s full note is below.
Dick Stevenson has been named Political Editor, a new desk at The New York Times. According to Politico, Stevenson will divide his time between D.C. and here. Here’s a snippet of the memo sent out to Times staffers:
As head of a newly formed Political Desk, Dick will be focused entirely on our campaign coverage. He will have two deputies, Gerry Mullany and Paul Volpe. In addition to overseeing the full-time political reporters and editors, Dick will be something of a collaborator-in-chief, closely coordinating with the Washington Bureau and other desks involved in political coverage.
So! Last night Barack Obama broke the hearts of D.C. doyennes everywhere by choosing to attend his first Washington dinner party at the home of George Will! Talk about taking team of rivals to the extreme. Also in attendance were Weekly Standard‘s William Kristol, New York Times columnist David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post. So maybe keep your enemies closer is the theme here — as everyone knows Bill Kristol responds well to being wined and dined!
Also of interest? As a piece in Politico over the weekend pointed out, unlike President-elects of the past (including George W.), Obama has yet to hold a presser with the New York Times White House team (conservative op-eders notwithstanding!). Michael Calerdone caught up with Times political editor Dick Stevenson to ask him about Obama’s lack of presser love.
