International Herald Tribune to Be Renamed
The International Herald Tribune will be renamed The International New York Times, the company’s CEO announced Monday. The change will take place this fall. In a statement, the New York Times Co. CEO Mark Thompson said the change is the result of the “digital revolution” making the newspaper’s flagship brand “one of the world’s best-known news providers.” “We want to exploit that opportunity,” Thompson said. A Times spokesperson did not comment on how the change would affect the company’s employees.
