Meachem: A Top Contender?

Radar magazine reports that “Newsweek editor Jon Meacham is one of the leading candidates to become [Len] Downie’s successor.”

Another Postie tells FishbowlDC that word on the street is that Meachem really wants the gig.

We’re also hearing that Katharine Weymouth has met with Steve Coll, David Remnick, Meachem, David Ignatius, Eugene Robinson, Liz Spayd and…Marcus Brauchli (and Phil Bennett’s still in the running).
