From a just-released press release put out by Mort Zuckerman’s New York Daily News (emphasis mine):

NEW YORK, N.Y., Jan. 5, 2006 — Mortimer B. Zuckerman, Chairman and Publisher of the Daily News, today announced the appointment of Marc Z. Kramer - one of the city’s youngest and most highly respected newspaper executives - as Chief Executive Officer.

( … )

Mr. Kramer, 50, rejoins the Daily News, America’s fifth-largest newspaper, from the New York Times where he has served in various capacities since 1998.

This won’t do much to dispel the perception that newspapers are intended for—and made by—old people.
