Abramson’s appointment comes as the Times — like so many newspapers — Is struggling to find new sources of revenue. Abramson started at the Times as an investigative journalist in 1997 after moving over from the Wall Street Journal. She revealed to New York magazine that she has a tattoo of a subway token on her right shoulder. Abramson is also the first woman to take the helm as executive editor.
