TV Too

CNBC snags the New York Times' Judith H. Dobrzynski as its new managing editor for business news. Most recently the paper's deputy business editor and Sunday Money & Business editor, Dobrzynski spent 19 years at BusinessWeek before joining the Times in 1995. "I've been in magazines, newspapers--why not TV?" she says. "There's an opportunity to apply what I know already while learning something new." Dobrzynski, 54, says the cable network is moving its coverage beyond the stock market toward other parts of the business world and is interested in doing more documentary-style programs, such as "The Big Heist: How AOL Took Time Warner," which aired in January.
