Catherine J. Mathis, a spokeswoman for The New York Times Company, said, “We have asked Bono to write an occasional column for the paper next year, covering a range of subjects, but are still finalizing the details.”

Kathy McKiernan, a spokeswoman for the ONE Campaign, a charitable organization created by Bono, said it was not clear if he would be paid, but if he were, she said, the money would go to the charity.
