Editor exodus continues at NYT

•, By Keith J Kelly
 On Tuesday, three high-profile names said they were departing the Gray Lady — media columnist Brian Stelter, Chief Political Correspondent Matt Bai and Sunday Magazine Editor-in-Chief Hugo Lindgren.

Rumors had swirled for months that Lindgren was on the way out — having fallen out of favor with Executive Editor Abramson.

And it would appear that Stelter, who had made an appearance as a guest anchor on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” over the summer — all the while insisting he had no intention of exiting the Times — may have had his eyes set on a TV gig.

Bai is leaving to go to Yahoo! News, where he will be reporting to another Times defector, Editorial Director Megan Liberman.

Two weeks earlier, she had made another high-profile raid on the Times and recruited tech columnist David Pogue.
