The Washington Post editor-in-chief has resigned

Washington Post Editor-in-Chief Sally Buzbee unexpectedly resigned.
The famous American newspaper is going through a major restructuring, the CEO has announced.

Taking up the post in 2021, Busby was the publication's first female editor in 150 years.

Her departure is part of the biggest move by publisher and CEO William Lewis since he took over in January, CNN reported.

Matt Murray, former editor-in-chief of the Wall Street Journal, is taking over as executive editor until the US presidential election in November.

No reason was given for the departure of Buzbee, a former editor-in-chief of the Associated Press.

In an email to staff, Lewis said he aims to launch a "new editorial department" this year.

The new operation will be separated from the traditional newsroom and from the editorial and opinion department.

It will focus on "service journalism and social media" while also using artificial intelligence. /BGNES
