The All-New, All-Different Times Foreign Desk

The Times has made some major shakeups over at the foreign desk. We already reported on John Burns‘ return to the States. Meanwhile:

  • Ethan Bronner is being made Jerusalem bureau chief. Replacements are being auditioned for his old position of deputy foreign editor.

  • Barry Bearack and Celia Dugger are now covering South Africa. Bearack was previously at the Times Magazine and Dugger reported on the global poverty beat.

  • Steve Erlanger is the new Paris bureau chief. He was working from Israel previously.

  • Elaine Sciolino “will take up terrorism and nuclear proliferation as her full-time beat.”

  • Craig Smith will move to Tokyo in summer 2008.

  • Ed Wong is undergoing Chinese language training in preperation for a move from Iraq to Beijing. Olympics coverage, anyone?

  • Hassan Fattah is leaving the Times Mid-East team to become managing editor of a new English-language pan-Arab daily. Bobby Worth will replace towards the end of 2007; Thanassis Cambanis is filling in temporarily.

    Memos can be found at the Observer.
