We Are Family: Sulzberger-Ochs Grandnephew Joins NYT Newsroom

NYT_08_21_09.jpgThe New York Observer reports that Associated Press reporter Sam Dolnick will join the Metro desk at The New York Times. Oh, and he’s the grandnephew of former NYT publisher Arthur Ochs “Punch” Sulzberger. A Times spokeswoman said Dolnick will start September 14.

After Arthur Gregg Sulzberger (son of Arthur Sulzberger, Jr.) joined the Times staff in February, ‘City Room’ bureau chief Sewell Chan told mediabistro.com, “He has been absolutely impressive, gracious, smart as a whip, hardworking, full of energy, full of ideas, and has a great sense of language.” Let’s hope this holds true for the new legacy on the block.
