International New York Times Expands Its Opinion Pages

The New York Times Company announced today that it will expand the opinion offerings of the International New York Times (INYT), as the rebranded International Herald Tribune will be called when it debuts on October 15. The expansion will include more international opinion contributors, new editorial staff and an additional, third page in the INYT’s weekend edition.

The INYT Opinion Pages ( INYT.com/Opinion) will be edited from Hong Kong, Paris, London and New York and will be tailored for global audiences.

The International New York Times has named two part-time editorial board writers: Mira Kamdar, based in Paris, and Masaru Tamamoto, based in Yokohama, Japan. Ms. Kamdar is a faculty member of the École de Journalisme at Sciences Po and the author of “Planet India: The Turbulent Rise of the Largest Democracy.” Mr. Tamamoto has been a senior fellow at the World Policy Institute, a research associate at Cambridge University and a MacArthur Foundation fellow in international peace and security at Princeton University.
