Julie Bloom has been named culture editor for The International New York Times, the recently renamed International Herald Tribune. Ms. Bloom will head to Paris, where she will oversee culture coverage for the global paper in a reimagined version of Katherine Knorr’s position at the International Herald Tribune. Earlier this spring, the Times announced that Dick Stevenson would be the Europe editor of the newly renamed paper.
Ms. Bloom started freelancing for the Times in 2006. A year later she was hired on the culture desk as a web producer. In 2011, Ms. Bloom began editing the Times’s dance coverage and continued writing for the paper.
“Julie, over the course of her six years in the Culture department, has unblinkingly led the desk’s integration of Web and print, pushing for more urgent and ambitious coverage in each medium,” read an email to staff announcing the appointment. “She will be a great and trusted partner in Europe and has wonderfully ambitious ideas about how to steer our international coverage.”
