Times Internet Chief Vivian Schiller Leaves for NPR

Well, on the day the Times Company’s stock took a nosedive and hit its 52-week low, the company’s General Manager for the internet, Vivian Schiller, announced she’s leaving the paper and heading to NPR.

Ms. Schiller one of the people responsible for making nytimes.com into something of a machine, and she leaves with lots of record breaking weeks in her wake.

She’s also the co-author, with Jon Landman, of all those Friday internet emails that we’ve come to adore, and, in part, responsible for confusing our understanding of what “platform agnostic” actually means.
