Boston Globe executive editor Brian McGrory plans to step down at the end of the year, reports Don Seiffert of the Boston Business Journals.
Seiffert reports, “McGrory, who took over in December 2012 after the departure of Martin Baron, told staff he will head to Boston University to chair the journalism department there. He also said he plan to write a regular column in the Globe, saying it will be ‘ideally not too different from what I used to do in my professional life.’
“McGrory has worked at the Globe for 27 years, including as a Metro columnist and associate editor, as well as a White House reporter, national reporter, general assignment reporter, and suburban reporter, according to the Globe website.”
