NYT names deputy exec editors

Among the changes executive editor Dean Baquet has brought to the New York Times' masthead: replacing the "managing editor" title with "deputy executive editor." The first to be appointed to this title on the editorial side: Susan ChiraMatt Purdy and Ian Fisher. Chira is charged with managing news reporting, Purdy oversees investigations and enterprise reporting, and Fisher will lead digital operations (Janet Elder has also been upped to deputy executive status, although Elder is tasked with managing talent, budget and operations).

"....and we're off: here, the new deputy exec editors of the @nytimes@susanchira,@nytjanet@mattbpurdy@fisheri," announced Edmund Lee at Re/code.

In response to a dearth of tweets from the new promotees, Storyful's David Clinch entreats, "Congrats @susanchira @fisheri @nytjanet @mattbpurdy @tbodkin on new roles...now up your Twitter game!"
