In addition to Jane Gross, who I mentioned last week, the veteran New York Times bylines said to be seeking buyouts include medical writer Lawrence K. Altman, baseball columnist Murray Chass and Washington investigative reporter Philip Shenon. Radar Online's report also adds this local angle:
Nakana'ela Scott Nathaniel, a web producer for the editorial page who videotaped the second aircraft to crash into the World Trade Center, was one of the youngest staff members to accept the buyout. Nathaniel, who is 35, had spent most of the last five years traveling with Nick Kristof and filing video reports to accompany Kristof's columns. Nathaniel also did several stints in the Baghdad bureau after the American invasion of Iraq. His wife, Meredith Artley, is the executive editor of the Los Angeles Times website.
* Added: The NYT will likely resort to layoffs as well. "While layoffs have become all too common across our industry, this is the first time the newsroom as a whole has confronted that blunt reality, and we approach it with a heavy heart," AME Bill Schmidt tells the staff. NYObserver via Romenesko
