New 'Post' editor selection delayed

In my most recent “From the Editor’s Desk," I stated a new editor would be selected by Friday evening. Unfortunately, only about half of the voting members on The Post Publishing Board could attend Friday’s meeting to select a new editor. 

To ensure a fair vote would take place, the present members of the board decided to videotape each presentation so those not in attendance would be able to review the presentations and give input. 

The board, which includes students, faculty and myself, will have a decision by noon on Monday if not sooner. 

A story will then be published to to alert The Post’s readers about the decision.
