Editor’s memo: ‘This will be a year of impressive investment in The Washington Post’

Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron’s says the Jeff Bezos-owned paper’s plans for 2014 include:

post* Lots of newsroom hiring;
* Creation of an 8 a.m. to midnight breaking-news desk;
* A website redesign “that should improve load speeds and navigation”; and
* An expanded Sunday magazine, “bigger in dimension and in the number of pages, with a new design and a range of new features.”
