After months of speculation, Marcus Brauchli is stepping down as executive editor of The Washington Post. Boston Globe Editor Marty Baron, 58, will be the new editor as of January 2.
Managing Editor Liz Spayd was scheduled to leave by the end of the year, but will stay through January 31 to assist in the transition between editors.
Brauchli will take a position as a "vice president of The Washington Post Company with responsibility for evaluating new media opportunities," the Post's Paul Farhi reports.
