No second time around

Reports from New York suggest that former BBC DG Mark Thompson has been trying to re-ignite his relationship with former BBC tech boss Erik Huggers, this time at the New York Times - but the Digital Dutchman has rebuffed his advances.

According to media pundit Ken Doctor, writing for website Capital New York, Thommo wanted Erik to be the Times' new Chief Digital Officer, but he rejected it last month. Erik, formerly of Microsoft, has been through a range of jobs since leaving Auntie in 2011, with Intel, Verizon, and now sits on two much smaller company boards - in Munich and Hilversum - despite living in San Francisco.

Expect more from Thommo this week as the NYT, "a business still in mortal strugggle" says Doctor, reports its annual figures.
