The newspaper industry is currently struggling, but with the recent sale of The Washington Post, many people are wondering what the fate of The New York Times might be in five years time.  Executive editor Jill Abramson, however, has been able to keep a staff of 1,100, a higher number than ten years ago.

The numbers are high even after a round of staff cuts at an upper management level during her two-year tenure as the paper’s first female executive editor.  The New York Times has 700,000 paid online subscribers, and is exploring new options to bring in revenue and maintain its reputation as the most important news source in the United States.
