Free Press in Peril: The Growing Threats to Journalism Around the World
A.G. Sulzberger is publisher of The New York Times. With more than 1,600 journalists reporting from more than 160 countries every year, The Times has a global digital audience of more than 150 million people, has won more Pulitzer Prizes than any other news organization, and has the largest digital subscription pay model for journalism in the world, with more than 4.7 million paid print and digital subscriptions.
As publisher, Mr. Sulzberger is the principal steward of the editorial independence, ambition, and excellence of Times journalism, and oversees both newsroom and company operations.
Mr. Sulzberger was a reporter at The Providence Journal and The Oregonian before joining The Times’s metro desk in 2009. He later worked as a national correspondent, covering the Midwest as head of the Kansas City bureau. Mr. Sulzberger has been one of the architects of The Times’s digital transformation and was the principal author of the 2014 Innovation Report, which focused on growing and engaging The Times's digital audience. He has also been one of the driving forces behind The Times’s business strategy, including the shift to a subscription-first business model. He is a graduate of Brown University.
He is the sixth member of the Ochs/Sulzberger family to serve as publisher since the newspaper was purchased by Adolph Ochs in 1896.
