Big news in the Big Apple
Merrill Perlman has been named the director of copy desks, a new position, at the New York Times. She has been managing editor of the NYT News Service since 1999.
Does her name sound familiar? It should. She has been a mainstay at the newspaper since 1983. And she's active in ACES.
Read a synopsis of a presentation she gave at the last ACES conference here. (It's great advice on pinpointing holes in stories.) There's a nice picture of her there, too. Put a face to the name.
