Report: Arthur Gregg Sulzberger headed to NYT

UPDATE: Gawker weighs in.

Arthur Jr. is widely believed to want his son to succeed him at the paper. Given where things stand now, the first question is whether Arthur III would even be interested in the headache of a job.

Given where the Times and indeed all newspapers are headed, it's hard to imagine Arthur III anywhere but on the online side of the operation.


FIT TO PRINT Arthur Gregg Sulzberger's Brown University yearbook photo.Thanks to Willamette Week for linking to my profile of former ProJo scribe Arthur Gregg Sulzberger, scion of the family that runs the New York Times, in reporting that the publicity-averse reporter is returning to the family business.

A source in Multnomah County government, the beat Sulzberger has covered since he came to The O in August 2006, says Sulzberger revealed several days ago that he's leaving Portland in late December.

Sulzberger declined to comment. (In case you're wondering, he was not on the list of Oregonian staffers who took the paper's generous buyout offer. Even if he was interested, he lacked enough seniority to apply.)
