AMHERST TIMES: New York Times Shows Thier Appreciation To The Amhersttimes.com

AMHERST TIMES


Monica Drake, Associate Managing Editor
The New York Times
Dear  James,
When I entered the doors of The New York Times as a copy editing intern 20 years ago, I was in awe. I would go on to shape the stories of journalistic legends at the same time I was being shaped as an editor. Once hired, I thought I'd found the perfect job, one that would never change.
Boy, was I wrong. I moved from New York news to Arts & Leisure to Travel to the print masthead, becoming the first African-American woman to rise to that position. In those 20 years, The Times went from publishing articles on two main platforms — print and the web — to publishing articles, video, augmented reality and more on every conceivable platform and device. We aren't just trying to top ourselves. We are ceaselessly dedicated to delivering our stories more vividly than ever to our subscribers and readers.
You are the reason that I used every new tool in our growing stockpile to explore the world's urban centers and bucolic spaces in the immersive 52 Places to Go annual travel feature. You are the reason that I choose you out of  13,000 reporters who applied to file stories from each of the places on this year's list. Your passion for exploration pushes our coverage, to allow you to experience new cultures and distant horizons through our storytelling.
