Is this man the Boston Globe’s next editor?
Boston Phoenix editor Peter Kadzis predicts the next editor of the Boston Globe will be either managing editor Caleb Solomon or Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editor (and former Globe Washington bureau chief) David Shribman.

Shribman might be the leader of the pack among the Globe outsiders, but my money is on Solomon.

If I’m right, Caleb can buy me a cup of espresso (Caffé Dello Sport, Hanover Street). If I’m wrong, I’ll buy him a drink at the saloon of his choice.

Also mentioned: New York Times metro editor Carolyn Ryan, and Denver Post Greg Moore. (Both are Globe alums.)
