Arthur Gregg Sulzberger Tapped as Heir Apparent at New York Times

Sulzberger, 36, joined the New York Times in 2009 and was most recently an associate editor for strategy. His new appointment would be effective Nov. 1.

The appointment was approved by a selection committee that included representatives of The Times Co’s senior management, its board and the Ochs-Sulzberger family trust.

Should he succeed his father, Sulzberger would represent the fifth generation of his family to serve as publisher since the family patriarch, Adolph S. Ochs, purchased the newspaper in 1896, the New York Times said.
