NY Times Changes Dining Section to ‘Food’

NY Times logo GThe New York Times is making some changes to its Dining section — specifically, it is being renamed “Food” and will be edited by Sam Sifton. Food staffers will also be combined with staffers working on the NYT Cooking site and (yet to be released) app.

Assisting Sifton will be Susan Edgerley, serving as the Food section’s deputy editor.

“The Times has long been a leader in covering all aspects of food and dining,” wrote Dean Baquet, executive editor of the Times, in the memo announcing the news. “The launch of the new Cooking app, along with combining the newsroom’s editing and reporting talent in one team under the direction of Sam and with Susan’s editorial and managerial help, will enhance our coverage and make it even more delightful and useful for readers.”

You can read Baquet’s full note below.
