Jeremy W. Peters, who covers New York state government in Albany, takes over the New York Times newspaper and magazine beat as of June 1. That makes him the lead NYT reporter on what will happen post-bankruptcy with Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, on the future of Emmis and thus Los Angeles magazine, and a ton of other big national stories. He's a former NYT intern and stringer who has worked for Metro and Business and scored on some good stories. He replaces Richard Perez-Pena, the former Angeleno who is now covering New Jersey. Romenesko has the memo.
