NEW YORK - The New York Times Co on Wednesday replaced executive editor Jill Abramson in a surprising move after less than three years in the top job, effective immediately, naming managing editor Dean Baquet to succeed her.



Abramson, 60, was appointed The New York Times' first woman editor in 2011. Baquet was named managing editor at the same time, hand-picked by Abramson to be her deputy.



Baquet, a Pulitzer prize-winning reporter and former editor of the Los Angeles Times, becomes The New York Times' first African-American editor.
