Sally Buzbee resigns as Washington Post executive editor | National Affairs

NEW YORK (AP) — The Washington Post said Sunday that its executive editor, Sally Buzbee, has resigned after three years at the helm of one of journalism’s most storied brands.

She will be replaced by Matt Murray, former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, until this fall’s presidential election. Subsequently, Robert Winnett, currently deputy editor of the Telegraph Media Group, will take over as editor following the election.

No reason was given for Buzbee’s departure.

Buzbee, a former top editor at The Associated Press, was announced in May 2021 as Martin Baron’s replacement.
