Frank Bruni Named Times Op-Ed Columnist(NYT/ Media Decoder)

Frank Bruni — whose writing career at The New York Timeshas spanned two presidential campaigns, part of a papacy, and more than five years as chief restaurant critic — has been named an op-ed columnist. HuffPost: Bruni becomes the paper’s first openly gay op-ed columnist. New Yorkmagazine / Daily Intel: It “will be a sharp, opinionated look at a big event of the last week, from a different or unexpected angle, or a small event that was really important but everyone seems to have missed, or something entirely different,” said section editor Andrew Rosenthal. WWD/ Memo Pad: “We haven’t really spoken about primary topics, per se,” Bruni told WWD. “The main parameters we’ve discussed, the editors and I, are that the Sunday column should be very clearly keyed to, and should very obviously stem from, something that occurred in the previous six days.” Business Insider / The Wire: Bruni’s primary role will be to anchor the revamped Week in Review section on Sundays. HuffPost: When the New York Times’ editorial page editor Andy Rosenthal told staff Monday that Bruni will soon get a Sunday op-ed column, he revealed something else about the upcoming relaunch of the paper’s “Week in Review” section: It will be called “Sunday Review.”
