Mira Kamdar and Masaru Tamamoto have joined The New York Times' editorial board part-time, a memo from Andy Rosenthal, Terry Tang, Trish Hall and Sewell Chan told staffers Tuesday morning. They join the Times as it prepares to rename the International Herald Tribune
as The International New York Times. The renamed paper will launch Tuesday, Oct. 15.
The memo also lists some contributors whom the Times announced yesterday would contribute to the INYT, including former Le Monde Editor-in-Chief Sylvie Kauffmann and the Israeli writer Shmuel Rosner.
Serge Schmemann, who edited the Herald Tribune's editorial page, "will bring his many years of experience as a correspondent and editor to writing for the opinion pages," the memo, reproduced below, says.
