She also announced her new position over Twitter: “Some late Wednesday news: I’m going to the NYT’s Opinion pages. Excited.”
Heffernan, 41, was with the Times Magazine for four years until earlier this year, when new editor Hugo Lindgren decided to end her column, “The Medium.”
This news comes following several departures at the Times‘ Opinion pages, including Bob Herbert, who recently left to pursue other projects, Frank Rich, who left earlier this month for New York magazine, David Shipley, who left for Bloomberg’s new opinion venture, and editor Mark Lotto, who is leaving for GQ.
