Media insiders have been buzzing behind the scenes over Barbaro and Tobin’s relationship — which the couple has revealed to their Times bosses, sources said.
Page Six cited sources who insisted that Barbaro and Tobin’s relationship did not begin until Barbaro and Levin had already parted ways.
A source added of Barbaro and Tobin: “They work very closely together … part of the show’s success is this team’s close work.” The source said there is “nothing inappropriate” about the relationship.
Tobin was hired in 2016 by the Times as its first executive producer for audio, arriving from Boston’s WBUR.
Barbaro’s worked at the Times since 2005, but has more recently shot to stardom as host of “The Daily,” with 5 million listeners a month.
