Brian McGrory named Globe’s new editor

Brian McGrory, a 23-year veteran of The Boston Globe who has led groundbreaking coverage of corruption as an editor and whose columns have made him an essential voice in the region, will become the news organization’s next editor.

McGrory, 51, will take over the job immediately, replacing Martin Baron, who left last week to become editor of the Washington Post. McGrory will report to Globe publisher Christopher M. Mayer.
