Brian McGrory Named Editor of Boston Globe

Brian McGrory, a 23 year veteran of the Boston Globe, has been named the paper’s new editor. McGrory joined the Globe in 1989 as one of the first staffers to serve in the paper’s South Weekly section. Since then he has held a variety of roles, including White House correspondent, general reporter, and national correspondent.

“Brian has distinguished himself throughout his career at the Globe as a reporter, editor and columnist and as a native of Boston, he is the ideal candidate to lead the Globe’s newsroom,” said the Globe’s publisher, Christopher Mayer, in a statement. “Brian will continue to emphasize the accountability reporting that has been the Globe’s trademark, combined with narrative storytelling that gives readers a strong sense of our unique community.”

“This is a great honor to guide the Boston Globe news operations, since I grew up delivering the Globe, then reading the Globe, and later writing for the Globe,” added McGrory. “It is also a great honor to work with my colleagues and build on what I believe is the best metro newspaper in America.”
