Sam Sifton's Next Steps: National Editor for The New York Times

As we have all just become aware of, Sam Sifton has just been named National Editor for The New York Times. He will be stepping down from his title as Restaurant Critic for the NY Times and is moving up in the editorial world.

With his restaurant critic experiences and 'star runs at Dining and Culture', Jill Abramson, the new executive editor of the NY Times, knows Sam Sifton will be a perfect fit. In Nick Fox's "Times Names Sam Sifton Next National Editor", Abramson writes, "Sam is a superb editor who brings infectious energy and a host of original ideas, digital and print, to everything he touches." With his two-year stint as the restaurant critic, it is time for him to continue to mold the NY Times into something great. Congratulations go out to Sam Sifton! We are looking forward to seeing who will be named the next NY Times restaurant critic.
