The New York Times’ Metro editor resigned Monday following what’s described as an investigation involving several women, The New York Post reports, citing unnamed sources.
“Wendell Jamieson is quitting ‘after an investigation,’ Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Managing Editor Joseph Kahn said in an email sent to the newsroom and obtained by The Post,” the publication reports. “They didn’t explain what the probe concerned, but sources say it involved women and went on for several weeks.”
In a statement included in the memo to staffers, Jamieson is quoted saying: “I regret and apologize for my mistakes and leaving under these circumstances.”
The Post notes that Jamieson, 51, had held the job for five years and had worked at The Times since 2000 following stints at Newsday, the Daily News and The Post.
