New York Times expands down under, appoints Oz bureau chief

The New York Times is setting up shop down under

The New York Times is setting up shop down under, announcing US-import and one-time Rolling Stone writer Damien Cave as the Australia Bureau Chief.

Cave and Williams

The news comes in an internal memo from International Editor Michael Slackman, Deputy International Editor Jodi Rudoren and Asia Editor Phil Pan, which reads in part:

Australia is the next frontier for The Times’ global expansion, and we’ve found the perfect pair of pioneers to tackle it: Damien Cave, one of our most entrepreneurial and forward-thinking journalists, and Jacqueline Williams, an Oz native who has spent the last 18 months winning wide admiration in our investigative unit.

They will join Michelle Innis, who has been a regular contributor to the international report for three years.
