Editor search rolls on at the Observer


Six weeks ago, The New York Observer put an end to one of the New York media world's more entertaining guessing games by naming a replacement for its departing longtime editor, Peter Kaplan. The job went to Tom McGeveran, then the paper's online editor, on an interim basis.

That appointment may have quieted the speculation, but it didn't end the Observer's editor hunt. Owner Jared Kushner confirms to DailyFinance that he is continuing to interview candidates for Kaplan's job, even as McGeveran strives to prove himself by maintaining the newspaper's high editorial standards with a sharply diminished staff.
