The New York Times Announces New Berlin Bureau Chief And Europe Editor

The New York Times today announced that Alison Smale will become Berlin Bureau Chief and Dick Stevenson will become Europe Editor, based in Paris. Both will take up their positions later in the year.

Mr. Stevenson will be responsible for directing coverage of European news for all editions of The New York Times on all platforms, including the International New York Times, which the rebranded International Herald Tribune (IHT) will be called when it debuts later this year. He will report to foreign editor Joe Kahn as well as to assistant managing editor Larry Ingrassia.

Most recently Chief Washington Correspondent, Mr. Stevenson has been politics editor, Washington, DC deputy bureau chief, economics correspondent and a correspondent in Los Angeles and London. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the London School of Economics, Stevenson joined The Times in 1985.

Ms. Smale became executive editor of the IHT in 2009. She joined The Times in July 1998 as weekend foreign editor and served as deputy foreign editor before becoming managing editor of the IHT. She was previously the AP’s Vienna bureau chief for Eastern Europe and a correspondent in Moscow.

In making the announcement, Jill Abramson, executive editor of The New York Times, said, “As we build one news gathering operation that will combine our journalistic strengths and help us to expand our global readership, we are lucky to have such a talented editor and manager direct our European news coverage. Dick’s deep understanding of politics and economics, and his embrace of digital journalism make him especially well-suited to the role.”

Jill Abramson continued, “For the past decade, Alison Smale has been the heart and soul of the IHT, a consummate journalist and passionate leader as executive editor for more than four years. Her deep knowledge of Germany will enable The Times, both the domestic edition and the International New York Times, to cover Germany and Europe’s place in the world – one of the most important stories anywhere – with the unparalleled sophistication and insight that The Times and IHT have long provided to readers.”
