New York Times Hire It's First Woman Executive Editor

In the paper's 160-year history, there has never been a woman executive editor at The New York Times. That all changed this morning with the announcement of Bill Keller stepping down and Jill Abramson taking his place. Mr. Keller will become a full-time writer. Abramason has been the managing editor since 2003.

I'm fairly excited to have a female fill such a high position with such a powerful company. It definitely is ground breaking and noteworthy. However, I don't think I'll renew my subscription because of it. I question a lot of their practices so hopefully she'll bring a better vibe. Rather than start silly feuds like Mr. Keller did.

What do you think of this news?
