Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. (born 22 September 1951) became the publisher of "The New York Times" in 1992 and chairman of the board of its owner, The New York Times Company, in 1997, succeeding his father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger.

Sulzberger was born in Mount Kisco, New York, the son of Barbara Winslow (née Grant) and the previous "Times" publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, and the grandson of another "Times" publisher, Arthur Hays Sulzberger. He is married to artist and journalist Gail Gregg. They recently announced plans to end their marriage. According to the chronicle of the Sulzberger family and "The New York Times" published in "The Trust: The Private and Powerful Family behind the New York Times", by Susan E. Tifft and Alex S. Jones, published by Little, Brown in 1999, Sulzberger is sometimes referred to by the nickname "Pinch", a variation on his father's nickname "Punch", but dislikes the name.Susan E. Tifft and Alex S. Jones, "The Trust: The Private and Powerful Family behind the New York Times" (Boston: Little, Brown, 1999). ] fact|date=August 2008

Sulzberger earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Tufts University in 1974. He was a reporter with The "Raleigh Times" from 1974 to 1976, and a London correspondent for The Associated Press from 1976 to 1978. He joined "The New York Times" in 1978 as a correspondent in its Washington bureau. He moved to New York as a metro reporter in 1981 and was appointed assistant metro editor later that year.

From 1983 to 1987, he worked in a variety of business departments, including production and corporate planning. In January 1987, he was named assistant publisher and, a year later, deputy publisher, overseeing the news and business departments. In both capacities, he was involved in planning The Times's automated color printing and distribution facilities in Edison, New Jersey, and at College Point in Queens, New York, as well as the creation of the six-section color newspaper.

Sulzberger played a central role in the development of the Times Square Business Improvement District, officially launched in January 1992, serving as the first chairman of that civic organization. He also helped found and serves as chairman of New York City Outward Bound.

Sulzberger has a son, Arthur Gregg Sulzberger III, and a daughter, Annie Sulzberger, who both attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Arthur Gregg writes for the "The Oregonian".
