Díez joins NY Times as senior editor for newsroom development and support
The New York Times sent out the following excerpt announcement:
We’re thrilled to announce that María Sánchez Díez, a talented journalist with a strong background in digital storytelling and audience development, is joining the Newsroom Development and Support team as a senior editor of digital storytelling and training.
María comes to us from The Washington Post, where she worked on the audience team, helping reporters and editors grow readership as senior editor for subscriptions and engagement. Prior to that, she was an operations editor, embedding on the Local and National teams.
Throughout her career, María has worked in a variety of roles as an editor and a reporter. She was a general assignment editor at Univision. She covered Latin American issues for Quartz and has written for El País, El Diario Soitu and Condé Nast.
María, who is a Fulbright scholar, a Tow-Knight Center fellow and alumna of Online News Association’s Women’s Leadership Accelerator, describes herself as a journalist working at the intersection of journalism, audience and product. She has also taught a graduate-level journalism course on reporting and writing at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. In other words, she is going to fit right in on the N.D.S. team.
María’s first day with us is June 21 and we can’t wait for her to join our team.
