In “seismic shakeup,” The Washington Post parts ways with top editor, Sally Buzbee

by | Jun 3, 2024

The Washington Post parted ways with its top editor, Sally Buzbee, in a “seismic shakeup” executed by new publisher and chief executive William Lewis just months before the high-stakes 2024 presidential election, reports CNN.

“Sally is an incredible leader and a supremely talented media executive who will be sorely missed,” Lewis said in a statement. “I wish her all the best going forward.”

While Lewis praised Buzbee publicly, she oversaw a particularly tumultuous period at the venerable newspaper. During her three-year tenure, The Post saw much of its audience dissipate, states CNN.

While The Post celebrated several journalism triumphs under Buzbee, winning numerous awards, her tenure was also stained by “severe infighting in 2022 that spurred national headlines and embarrassed the newspaper,” states CNN.

The Post said that Matt Murray, former editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal, willreplace Buzbee as executive editor. Murray will serve in that position through the 2024 presidential election
