Marty Baron, new Washington Post executive editor

Who will replace Marty Baron as Boston Globe editor? BU communications dean Tom Fiedler believes Baron’s replacement will “more likely” come from within the New York Times rather than the NYT-owned Globe.

“The New York Times has a very strong bench and with Jill Abramson recently taking over, a lot of those people might be a little restless,” says the former Miami Herald editor and onetime Baron colleague. (Boston Herald)
