In his first interview since taking over as executive editor of The New York Times, Dean Baquet told NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik that his predecessor, Jill Abramson, was fired because of her failed relationship with senior management.

Folkenflik discusses the interview and The New York Times’ new leadership with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson.
