Times' Vega gets race, ethnicity beat
The New York Times just tapped staff reporter Tanzina Vega to join its national desk to cover a new beat: race and ethnicity.
Vega made the announcement on Twitter (where else?).
NYT Phoenix bureau chief Fernanda Santos congratulated her, "Yay @tanzinavega, joining @NYTNational to write about the nation's diversity and its tension points. Bienvenida!"
"Great new beat for @nytimes," agreed Dan Saltzstein (also at the Times), who then continued, "correspondent covering diversity and its tension points -- and great person to do it, @tanzinavega. Kudos."
