A lot of tipsters have been telling FishbowlDC that Washington Post Managing Editor Phil Bennett doesn’t plan to stick around the Post for much longer and that Liz Spayd is set to be named managing editor of both the newspaper and washingtonpost.com (looks like Harry Jaffe is hearing similar rumors).
Since Marcus Brauchli beat out Bennett for the Post’s executive editor position, it makes sense that Bennett might be looking elsewhere and Brauchli would certainly be in his right to hand-pick his own M.E. Also, Posties hear that Bennett interviewed for a position with the New York Times’ digital operation.
