Jill Abramson talked about her new position as the first female executive editor of the New York Times and her new book, The Puppy Diaries: Raising a Dog Named Scout. She discussed her career in journalism, motivation for writing, and the explosion of choices readers have for obtaining news and information. Video clips were shown of interviews from 1988, 1996, and 1998. She asserted that the Times is more irreplaceable than ever because of its authority and the quality of its journalism. She related the work done behind the scenes of some of the major stories covered by the paper and shared her vision of changes she wants to make. A video by Robert Redford from that day’s opinion section of the New York Times Web site was shown.

Jill Abramson worked for American Lawyer, Legal Times and the Wall Street Journal before joining the New York Times as Washington bureau chief, and in 2003 became the paper’s managing editor. close
