McGrory named Boston Globe editor, replaces Baron
Thursday - 12/20/2012, 8:05pm EST
BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Globe has named its deputy managing editor for local news, Brian McGrory, as its new editor.
McGrory, 51, succeeds Martin Baron, who became editor of the Washington Post last week, the Globe said.
"Brian has distinguished himself throughout his career," the Globe's publisher, Christopher Mayer, said Thursday. "He 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."
McGrory oversaw an investigation of state government that led to resignations and indictments of officials including a former House speaker convicted of corruption charges last year. He said his goal is "to inject even more urgency" into the newspaper.
"We need to make sure our journalism is relentlessly interesting and important, and we need to do our job with a sense of humanity, a dose of humor and the courage to hold people in power accountable," he said.
McGrory, a 23-year Globe veteran, will oversee editorial direction of the newspaper and its websites, BostonGlobe.com and Boston.com.
He joined the Globe in 1989 and has been a general assignment reporter, a White House correspondent, a roving national correspondent and an associate editor. He also has been a metro columnist.
Before joining the Globe, the Bates College graduate worked at the New Haven Register in New Haven, Conn., and The Patriot Ledger in Quincy. He grew up in the Boston area.
