3 journalists leaving The New York Times

Three journalists at The New York Times on Tuesday announced plans to leave the newspaper.

Hugo Lindgren, editor of The New York Times Magazine, told his staff in a brief meeting Tuesday afternoon that he would leave The Times at year’s end. No successor has been named, a spokeswoman for The Times said. Responding to a request for comment, Lindgren wrote in an e-mail: “I loved editing The Times Magazine over the course of 150-plus issues.”

Also Tuesday, CNN said it had hired Brian Stelter, a media reporter at The Times, to host its weekly news show “Reliable Sources.” In addition, Matt Bai, a political correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, said he was joining Yahoo News as its national political columnist.
