One Question Re: Jill Abramson Firing, Dean Baquet Ascension

Jill Abramson, the New York Times' first female Executive Editor was allegedly fired, in part for investigating the difference in her salary and that of her male predecessor. As the paper's first black Executive Editor is Dean Baquet receiving a salary on par with his predecessors? - peoplewhowrite

Jill Abramson was the New York Times’ first female Executive Editor. Dean Baquet is the paper’s first African-American to fill the post.

If it’s true that Jill Abramson was fired for hiring a lawyer to investigate the disparity between her salary and that of her male predecessor — considering income inequality disproportionately impacts blacks — how much is the New York Times paying Dean Baquet?
