According to an announcement from the newspaper Washington Post, its Executive Director Sally Bubzee has left the position. 

In the restructuring of the offices and post, Matt Murray, former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, will replace Buzbee until the 2024 U.S. presidential election in November. After the elections, Robert Winnett, deputy editor of The Telegraph Media Group, will take on the newly introduced position of editor. 

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

Murray, who steps into the position immediately, said in a statement, “I’m deeply honored to join such a storied news institution with its long, rich history of memorable and impactful journalism and want to thank Sally for her great leadership. I am excited by Will and Jeff’s vision for the Post’s next era of growth and reinvention and can’t wait to get started.”

Bubzee joined the Post in 2021 to become the first woman to lead the publication in its 150-year-long history.  It is under Sally’s leadership that the Post won many significant awards like the recent Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.
