The following excerpt was sent out from The New York TimesMarc Lacey, Tom Jolly and Ian Trontz:

We’re naming two Page One correspondents, Thomas Fuller and Michael Levenson, who will act as rewrite reporters on the biggest stories of the day to help to turn our live coverage into lede-alls for print.


Thomas Fuller

Thomas doesn’t really need an introduction. For the past seven years, he was our San Francisco bureau chief, covering his beat with precision, style and compassion as Northern California confronted wildfires, the pandemic, runaway crime, the hollowing out of downtown, homelessness, the battle for the soul of the left, recall elections and feral swine.

Thomas began his Times career as a clerk in the Paris newsroom of The International Herald Tribune and for two decades was a correspondent based in Malaysia, Brussels, Paris and Bangkok, covering wars, earthquakes and military coups.



Michael Levenson

Michael, a mainstay of the Express desk since 2019, is already a go-to lede-all writer for breaking news, whether the news is Tennessee floods, Ukrainian offensives, fires in Colorado, evacuations from Afghanistan or many other intense events.

Before The Times, he spent 15 years at The Boston Globe, where he covered City Hall, the State House, two presidential elections and a wide variety of general assignment news.



Both Thomas, who will remain in San Francisco, and Michael, who will cover the news from New York, will continue to contribute work to their current desks when awaiting the call to tackle the next big breaking news story.
