Sally Buzbee to The Washington Post Newsroom


"The Washington Post has named longtime journalist Sally Buzbee of the Associated Press as its executive editor, marking the first time a woman has been appointed to lead the 143-year-old news organization.


Buzbee, AP’s executive editor and senior vice president, will take over leadership of The Post’s nearly 1,000-person newsroom next month, said publisher Fred Ryan, who made the announcement to the newspaper’s staff on Tuesday.

She succeeds Martin Baron, who retired at the end of February after serving as editor since 2013. Her appointment ended a search that began 10 weeks ago, following Baron’s retirement.

Buzbee, 55, has headed AP’s news operations since 2017, and has been with the organization since she began her career as a journalist in 1988. The venerable wire service, headquartered in New York, is one of the largest news organizations in the world, with about 2,800 journalists. Like The Post, it produces hundreds of news articles, feature stories and photos every day that are distributed to news outlets worldwide. It also produces audio and video reports that are carried on TV and radio stations." Paul Farhi

Good luck to Sally Buzbee on her new role. I stopped reading the Washington post at least 15 years ago and the New York Times, as well. So can't say I keep up with their staffing changes.

Hey there Roy! She is no Jason Robards (which very few people will understand that comment)

Sally Buzbee looks very familiar to me.  Perhaps, I've seen her in other news media.  Congratulations to her!

I terminated my WAPO subscription over 12 years ago. Hopefully the new editor will bring some less bias reporting.
