NEW YORK (AP) – Washington Post Editor-in-Chief Marty Baron, who has led the newspaper on a resurgence in recent years, said on Tuesday he would retire at the end of February.
One of the nation’s top journalism executives, Baron took over writing The Post in 2012 after having edited the Boston Globe and Miami Herald before that. Liev Schreiber portrayed Baron in the 2015 film “Spotlight” on The Globe’s Inquiry into the Catholic Church and introduced the journalist to a wider audience.
In a note to Post staff, Baron recounted a series of “epic” stories he has been involved in during his 45-year career in journalism.
“The experience was deeply meaningful, enriched by colleagues who made me a better professional and a better person,” he writes. “At 66, I feel ready to move on.”
Post editor and CEO Fred Ryan said Baron had “dramatically expanded our coverage areas, inspired great reports, managed an impressive digital transformation and increased readership and subscribers to unprecedented levels. .
The newspaper won 10 Pulitzer Prizes during his tenure.
Ryan has promised a “broad and inclusive” search for Baron’s successor, taking into account internal and external candidates.
