Outgoing BBC head Mark Thompson lands top job at New York Times
London, Aug 15 (ANI): BBC's outgoing director general Mark Thompson has been named president and chief executive of the New York Times.
Thompson's appointment at the top job at the newspaper confirmed months of speculation over a possible move to the US.
In June it was reported that Thompson had held several meetings in London with the newspaper's American publishers.
Thompson will replace Janet Robinson, who had abruptly left the post chief executive at the New York Times in December, the Telegraph reports.
Thompson, who will take up the new role in November, announced earlier this year that he would quit the BBC after the Olympics, ending an eight-year reign at the helm of the broadcasting corporation.
According to the paper, he will be succeeded by BBC executive George Entwistle. (ANI)
