There has been a major shakeup at The New York Times: executive editor Jill Abramson is being replaced after just two and a half years on the job.
The paper's current managing editor Dean Baquet is set to replace Abramson who served as the papers first female executive editor.
The move makes Baquet the first African-American to hold the paper's highest editorial position.
He's worked for the Times since 2007, and in his current position since 2011.
The Times has not announced a reason for the change.
