Thomas Klebanow is the paper's managing editor and is responsible for the day to day running of the paper.
Klebanow is renowned for hiring young female reporters with questionable writing skills. He worked with executive editor James Whiting at the Philadelphia Inquirer and followed him to The Baltimore Sun. Klebanow is often left with the responsibility for cutbacks and buyouts by Whiting. He is a vain and nebbish man with a good sense of the bottom line and the potential of a story to draw readers.
Klebanow chairs the daily budget meetings and decides how much space to allocate to each story.
Klebanow is played by David Costabile.
