Two Female Newspaper Execs Out at Major Papers

Two female editors-in-chief are out suddenly at prestigious papers, Jill Abramson at The New York Times, and Natalie Nougayrede at Le Monde. Ms. Abramson apparently parted ways with the Times after she asked why her salary and benefits were substantially less than her male predecessor's. Dean Baquet will replace her as the first African-American Times executive editor. More coverage here from The Guardian,  here from the New York Times, here from Fox News.

Ms. Nougayrede indicated that she ran into differences of opinion between her and staff over restructuring of the paper. More here from The Guardian, here from the New York Times.
