One candidate for a key role is Raju Narisetti, who recently left his job as editor of Mint, a business newspaper in India, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Narisetti was a longtime colleague of Mr. Brauchli, who became executive editor of the Post in the fall after a career at The Wall Street Journal.
Both Mr. Brauchli and Mr. Narisetti had long careers at the Journal. Mr. Narisetti ran the paper’s European edition until 2006 and Mr. Brauchli was managing editor of the Journal from May 2007 to April 2008.
Mr. Brauchli said through a Post spokeswoman he “has not yet named anyone to succeed Phil or Jim.”
Mr. Brauchli also could elevate a Post insider to managing editor, and said through the spokeswoman that it is “important to have someone who knows the Post well.” One person who could be in the mix is Washingtonpost.com editor Liz Spayd, who has experience both online and in print.
