Nancy Barnes, top news exec, exits NPR

by | Sep 26, 2022

The top news executive at NPR is leaving the organization, an unexpected departure that coincides with a shake-up in the nonprofit media giant’s management structure. reports The Washington Post.

Nancy Barnes, who took over NPR’s newsroom in 2018 as senior vice president and editorial director of the broadcasting and digital news operation, said she will leave the organization later this fall. She did not announce new plans, but said in a note to staff on Friday that she will “pursue other journalistic endeavors.”

According to The Post, her decision came “hours after NPR’s chief executive, John Lansing, announced the creation of a new position that will oversee all of NPR’s programming — trademark news programs such as “All Things Considered” as well as podcasts and non-news programming such as “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me.” The new chief content officer position would have effectively created another tier of management over Barnes, who previously reported directly to Lansing.
“Barnes and Lansing did not respond to requests for comment.”.
