Weymouth’s departure is the end of an era of Graham family involvement with the Post. Her great-grandfather bought the newspaper in the 1930s, and her uncle Donald Graham sold it to Bezos last August for $250 million.
She’ll be replaced by Frederick J. Ryan, the founding CEO of Politico and a former Reagan administration official.
I’ve bolded the most intriguing part of this announcement.
I wonder how the lefty WaPo newsroom hacks will like working for a “former Reagan official?”
