Jill Abramson’s First Task: Stop The Times Defections (New York/ Daily Intel)

When Jill Abramson replaces Bill Keller at the end of the summer, she will not only be the first female executive editor to run the Grey Lady, but the first Timeseditor who will have to really sweat keeping the paper’s talented journalists from jumping ship. Yahoo! News / The Cutline: David Rohde, the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Timesreporter who was famously kidnapped by the Taliban in 2008, is leaving the paper of record to become a columnist at Reuters. Poynter / Romenesko: Rohde’s writing will focus on foreign affairs and globalization, says a Reuters memo. Yahoo! News / The Cutline: Chris Suellentrop, an editor at The New York Times Magazine, has joined Yahoo!’s network of news blogs, where he will become deputy editor starting Aug. 8. Poynter / Romenesko: Suellentrop was the editor of last week’s Jose Antonio Vargas story “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” He also assigned and edited Mark Leibovich’s award-winning profile of Politico’s Mike Allen.
