Publisher of The Washington Post Will Resign -

Publisher of The Washington Post Will Resign - "By RAVI SOMAIYASEPT. 2, 2014"

The Washington Post announced on Tuesday that its publisher, Katharine Weymouth, was stepping down, signaling the end of the Graham family’s connection to the newspaper it owned for 80 years before selling it last year to Jeffrey P. Bezos, the founder of Amazon.

Ms. Weymouth will be succeeded by Frederick J. Ryan Jr., the founding chief executive of Politico and a former Reagan administration official. He starts Oct. 1.

Ms. Weymouth, a granddaughter of Katharine Graham, the longtime Washington Post publisher, was the last major link to the family that had taken on a sitting president during the Watergate scandal and transformed the paper into an American institution. Her uncle, Donald E. Graham, was the chairman of The Post before selling to Mr. Bezos, and it was expected that Mr. Bezos would bring in his own publisher to oversee the paper’s business operations.
