Staff updates from audio | The New York Times Company

Audio has been an important part of our journalism for years now. But our audio journalism still hasn’t become an important part of our digital experience. Our most dedicated homepage readers may not know that we publish a wide range of award-winning podcasts, as well as many other pioneering audio formats.

I’m thrilled to introduce a new programming team that has worked hard to change that: The New York Times Audio Programming Team, led by Shreeya Sinha. In partnership with audio producers, editors and product teams, they have worked to shape our audio app, which is currently accessible to a small group by invitation only. The app represents our most ambitious experiment in bringing our signature audio journalism to our listeners, and it has become a laboratory for new kinds of audio journalism, from five-minute shorts to journalists around the world discussing and reading their stories at high voice.

The New York Times audio programming team includes Times veterans who have worked in various departments and BBC editors who have pioneered digital audio experiences. They partnered with our audio producers, editors and product teams to bring this experience to life. They’ve worked hard to forge a voice and identity for a product that we hope millions of listeners will love. We’ll have more details on our plans for the audio app soon.
