Bob McManus, a veteran of The New York Post since 1984, is retiring. Capital New York reports that Fred Dicker — another longtime Post editor — announced the news this morning on his radio show. McManus will step down in January.
McManus came to the Post as chief editorial writer. From 1990 to 2000 he served as deputy editorial page editor. In 2000 McManus was named editorial page editor.
Dicker said that McManus’ successor will be someone from the Wall Street Journal, but he declined to say who.
UPDATE (5:09 pm):
William McGurn, a vice president at News Corp. and former speech writer for George W. Bush, will succeed McManus.
