Bob McManus to retire as New York Post editorial page editor

Bob McManus‘s last day at the Post is Jan. 10, I’m told. I’ve sent him a few questions — he wasn’t at the paper when I called this morning — and will post what he sends back. (The person who took my call at the paper said McManus’s successor has been picked, but not publicly announced.)

McManus joined the Post in 1984 as chief editorial writer and became editorial page editor in 2000.

UPDATE: Capital New York’s Azi Paybarah is also reporting that McManus will retire and be succeeded by a Wall Street Journal columnist William McGurn. We’re still waiting for a name.
