Media: Tribune Education Reporter Headed To NYT


Word is out that the Tribune's Azam Ahmed is leaving the education beat and joining the New York Times as a business reporter.  Azam has only been covering CPS for a relatively short while (see the first post on the blog about him here), but he turned out some interesting stories during what by all accounts has been a difficult time in the newspaper business and in the Trib Towers in particular.    Click here for a Google news rundown of his byline over the past year and change, and tell us your favorite (or least favorite) AA pieces. No word on a replacement yet, though another reporter Noreen Ahmed-Ullah (no relation) has been covering CPS in recent days.Congrats, condolences.
