Cameron Barr to leave Washington Post after long tenure as managing editor


Cameron Barr, The Washington Post’s senior managing editor, will leave the company at the end of June, the paper announced Thursday, capping his tenure as one of the longest-serving managing editors in the paper’s history.

During a 19-year career at The Post, Barr helped oversee teams that won 12 Pulitzer Prizes. As managing editor for more than seven years, he oversaw much of the daily reporting produced by The Post.

Barr, 59, is moving with his wife to her native England, where he said he plans to return to writing, including in the essay and memoir form, away from the pressures of daily journalism, as well as taking on consulting and editing projects.
