Perhaps it is evidence that New Orleans is becoming the Big Easy once again, or a sign of post-Katrina fatigue among news consumers. The New York Times has announced it is pulling its New Orleans-based correspondent, Adam Nossiter, and sending him to the paper’s West Africa bureau in Senegal.

As The Times-Picayune reports, Nossiter has covered the Crescent City since the turbulent, miserable days following Hurricane Katrina, chronicling the city’s stopping-starting recovery ever since. The Times’ deputy national editor, however, insists the paper remains committed to long-term coverage of New Orleans.
