(Capital New York) – In an abrupt and unexpected move, The New York Times announced today that executive editor Jill Abramson will be leaving her position in the top masthead slot, to be replaced by her managing editor, Dean Baquet.

A full newsroom meeting was called immediately after the news went out around 2:30 this afternoon.

The paper’s publisher, Times Company chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr., did not specify the reason precisely, but said it did not have to do with the business side. He characterized the change as having been prompted by management issues in the newsroom.

“And that’s all I’m going to say about it,” said Sulzberger, according to two sources who were present. “It was an issue of newsroom management.”
