The New York Times' Michael Luo is heading to The New Yorker. Luo, currently with the Times' metro desk leading a team focused on investigations, will be a senior editor in charge of investigations, leading a stable of writers aimed at upping The New Yorker's game on investigative reporting. Luo said that leaving the Times after 13 years was "an incredibly difficult decision" — but that he feels like he’s moving from the “best newspaper in the world” to the “best magazine in the world."
