Carolyn Ryan is an award-winning journalist at The New York Times who oversaw coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign for the Times. She was recently promoted to the paper’s masthead to help lead the reshaping of the Times newsroom through a major recruitment of new talent.
Ryan has deep roots in political journalism. She helped lead The New York Times to a Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for its coverage of the downfall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, and two years later oversaw an investigation into mistreatment of the developmentally disabled, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
She was named Metro editor at the Times in 2011 and promoted to political editor and Washington bureau chief in 2013. In announcing Ryan's appointment to lead the Times coverage of the presidential campaign, Executive Editor Dean Baquet described Ryan as one of the top editing talents at the Times. According to Baquet, Ms. Ryan’s appointment was “a testament to the remarkable job she has done running coverage as the campaign evolved into the story of more than 20 candidates, and billions of dollars.”
Before joining the New York Times, Ryan was managing editor for local news at The Boston Globe. There, Marty Baron, then Executive Editor, lauded Ryan for leading the Globe's coverage of sprawling, powerful stories, including the Democratic National Convention in 2004, the legalization of same-sex marriage, the closing of Catholic churches in the Archdiocese of Boston, the search for a new president at Harvard, and Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy
