THE TIMES How the Newspaper of Record Survived Scandal, Scorn, and the Transformation of Journalism

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robert Petkoff

Contemporary Culture • 18.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Robert Petkoff delivers a masterful performance of this detailed history of the NEW YORK TIMES from 1976 to 2016. His narration is smooth and nuanced; his tempo and cadence move these fascinating inside stories of the "paper of record" forward. This is a gripping media story of how the Times survived scandals (Jason Blair and Judith Miller), the turnover of top editors, and, most importantly, the transition from a print to an online publication--first haltingly but ultimately successfully. The various members of the Sulzberger family, who have been publishers since 1884, are profiled, as well as the executive editors including the controversies and economic uncertainties that Howell Raines, Jill Abramson, and the longer tenured Abe Rosenthal lived through. THE TIMES remains vital. This audiobook explains why. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
