GWEN KNAPP DEATH, SENIOR STAFF EDITOR AT THE NEW YORK TIMES – Trending Notice
I’ll never forget the 2001 World Series when my coworker was a jerk and got into an argument with Gwen Knapp over a phone line. She was feisty and excellent at what she did. He declined her invitation to go outside when she asked him to. Gwen, RIP. Give her a phone number and then move aside. I collaborated with Gwen Knapp for many years. We battled day after day, tooth and nail. When we started working, she would kindly greet me, ask how my children were doing, and then roll up her sleeves for yet another fight. Everyone ought to have someone who is willing to push them to improve.
We were saddened to learn of the passing of our coworker @gwenknapp. A helpful coworker and a versatile journalist. She was one of the @nytimes editors who, along with this zinger, shared the @ACESEditors award for best headlines in 2021. May God bless her memories.
