There is growing chatter that Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron could soon retire, reports the New York Post.

Baron has not made any official announcement, continues the NY Post, “but talk continues to build that the acclaimed executive editor, who turned 66 in October, could unveil plans to exit shortly after the inauguration of Joe Biden as president on Jan. 20.

“In an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday morning, Baron did nothing to squash the speculation.

“Asked near the end of the segment if he wanted to address the chatter, Baron — who has helmed the paper since shortly before its 2013 acquisition by Jeff Bezos — responded:  “I can only share three letters, TBD. So I don’t really have any update for you.””
