NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Times has named Joseph Kahn as its new editor, replacing Dean Baquet as head of the newspaper’s newsroom.

The Times said Kahn, who has served as the newspaper’s editor since 2016, will assume his new role beginning June 14. Baquet will remain at the Times but in a new position, the newspaper said in a press release Tuesday.

Kahn was previously the Times’ Beijing bureau chief and head of the paper’s international bureau, which won six Pulitzer Prizes under his leadership.

“We couldn’t ask for a better leader for our newsroom amid the historic convergence of events,” said AG Sulzberger, publisher and president of The New York Times Co. “And as one of the architects of our digital transformation, Joe’s vision will be crucial as we seek to become even more valuable to readers around the world.
