Nicholas Kristof Departs New York Times, Weighs Run for Governor

Kristof, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, has been with The Times for 37 years, but as he weighs a possible bid to replace Gov. Kate Brown, it was clear that the 62-year-old had to move on.

Longtime New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof announced that he’s departing the newspaper. Despite the announcement coming Thursday, Kristof has been on leave since June as he explores a run for governor of Oregon.

Kristof, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, has been with The Times for 37 years, but as he weighs a possible bid to replace Gov. Kate Brown, it was clear that the 62-year-old had to move on. 

Over the years, Kristof has held various titles with the newspaper, beginning as a reporter in 1984. Then he transitioned to a foreign correspondent, where he won one of his Pulitzer prizes. He finally settled into his columnist in 2001. 

“An Opinion columnist since 2001, Nick redefined the role in the best possible way — elevating the journalistic form to a new height of public service with a mix of incisive reporting, profound empathy, and a determination to bear witness to those struggling and suffering across the globe,” The Times wrote in a statement. 

Kristof commented in the statement thanking those who made it possible to stick around at a newspaper for nearly 40 years. 

“When Abe Rosenthal hired me in 1984 to cover international economics for The Times, I figured I would leave only by retirement,” Nick said. “This has been my dream job, even with malaria, a plane crash in Congo, and periodic arrests abroad for committing journalism. Yet here I am, resigning — very reluctantly,” Kristof said. 

“I’ve been on the ride of a lifetime with The Times. I’ve gotten to know presidents and tyrants, Nobel laureates, and warlords while visiting 160 countries. And precisely because I have a great job, outstanding editors, and the best readers, I may be an idiot to leave. But you all know how much I love Oregon and how much I’ve been seared by the suffering of old friends there. So I’ve reluctantly concluded that I should try not only to expose problems but also see if I can fix them directly.”

iHeartMedia has announced its nominations for the 2022 iHeartRadio Podcast Awards in Los Angeles. The fourth annual event will be celebrating the most innovative talent and content creators in the industry.

There are three prominent nominees for the Podcast of the Year category for those in the news media world; former late-night host Conan O’Brien, The New York Times, and NPR.

O’Brien has left the late-night scene, but the former “Conan” host still has various projects going on, one being a podcast called “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” and is likely a favorite to win since O’Brien won the podcast award for Best Overall Host last year. 

Meanwhile, “The Daily,” a podcast produced by The New York Times and hosted by Michael Barbaro discussing the most significant news story of the day, is one of the candidates challenging O’Brien. Finally, NPR’s “Louder Than A Riot,” a podcast revealing the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration, hopes to take the award home. 

“We are excited to be back live for year four of the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards to recognize all the amazing content and talent that the podcasting medium has produced this past year,” Conal Byrne, CEO of iHeartMedia’s Digital Audio Group, said.

“Podcast listening has continued to soar across the U.S., seeing a nearly 60% increase in monthly listeners since our first awards show was announced in 2018, filling this industry with more diversity and innovation than ever before. We look forward to honoring these major advancements in-person during the 2022 iHeartRadio Podcast Awards this January.”

When it comes to the Best News Podcast category, these are the nominations for the award:

  • “Pod Save America” (Crooked Media)
  • “The Daily” (The New York Times)
  • “The Rachel Maddow Show” (MSNBC)
  • “Today, Explained” (Vox)
  • “Up First” (NPR)

The event will take place on January 13 at the iHeart Radio Theatre.

Breitbart, a conservative multimedia news-gathering agency, is mourning the loss of reporter Gerry Aranda whose body was pulled out of the Pacific Ocean in Chiapas, Mexico last week.

Aranda was on assignment in Mexico investigating the spread of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) and the group’s local affiliate, a self-defense organization calling themselves “Los Machetes.”

Aranda, 43, was also investigating the narco-politics behind the Haitian migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico Border.

“Gerry was on a brave mission to bring light to what is happening at our border and in Mexico,” said Larry Solov, CEO of Breitbart News. “His courage was inspiring, and he will be deeply missed by his Breitbart family.

Aranda began his work with Breibart five years ago with the Cartel Chronicles Project which allows Mexican journalists and others to write under pseudonyms so they can report truthfully without being murdered by the cartels

In 2012, Aranda joined Telemundo San Antonio as a news producer and moved on to anchor and management positions with Telemundo Lubbock, Telemundo Las Vegas, Univision Corpus Christi, Univision South Texas, and KRGV-ABC.
