New Jersey’s The Record Grabs Global Editor from The New York Times

The second largest newspaper in New Jersey — The Record — has hired Martin Gottlieb, Global Editions Editor of The New York Times for the past three years, as its new Editor-in-Chief.

At the Times, Gottlieb oversaw the Paris and and Hong Kong-based operations of the International Herald Tribune. Prior to that, Gottlieb was Associate Managing Editor of the Times’ newsroom on the weekends. He originally joined the Times in 1983 as a reporter.

“I am so excited about Marty’s joining The Record,” said the paper’s Publisher, Stephen A. Borg. “He is a real pro whose experience and stature will elevate us to the next level.”

Gottlieb is succeeding Frank Scandale, who left The Record two months ago.

Wall Street Journal: Lazard CEO and New York magazine owner Bruce Wasserstein has died at age 61, after being hospitalized Sunday with an irregular heartbeat.

All Things Digital: More cuts at Conde: Vogue lays off “at least six people”.

Boston.com: The New York Times has announced that it will not sell The Boston Globe.

New York Observer: A closer look at the cuts that have plagued New Jersey newspapers like the Star-Ledger, this year. “When this round of cuts is finished, The Star-Ledger‘s staff will be half the size of what it was a year ago, but at least it will still have a bustling office. The Record, on the other hand, has existed essentially without a home base for over a year—reporters can drop into an office when they want, but they’re encouraged to stay out on the streets. Meanwhile, The New York Times killed its New Jersey section and cleared out its bureaus.”

New Jersey Paper Reaffirms Our Faith in Ad/Edit Split

Editors remained steadfast, however, and the story ran the last Sunday in April.

“It’s pretty obvious [hospital administrators] thought they were going to hurt us very, very badly,” Malcolm A. Borg, chairman of the North Jersey Media Group, told The New York Times.

Justice, however, was served.

Sharing is Caring! Five New York Papers to Share Content

Worldwide financial crises make for strange bedfellows. In attempt to weather the industry-wide tsunami five New York daily papers have agreed to share editorial content.

The New York Daily News, Albany Times Union, The Record (Bergen Co., NJ), The Buffalo News, and The Star-Ledger have formed something they are calling the Northeast Consortium. Says Marc Kramer, CEO of the New York Daily News: “As the Northeast Consortium, our publications will assist each other in gathering news, sports and features materials, giving our readers access to more and expanded content from the top newspapers in each of the respective markets.”

No word yet whether this pooling of resources will result in layoffs or whether it’s just another original way to keep them from happening. Full release after the jump.
