Will McGrew, the co-owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the New York Times, will continue as publisher of The New York Post after her marriage to the paper’s CEO David A. Fahrenthold ended in divorce.
Shegroup announced in a statement on Friday that she was the “sole proprietor of the New Post Company,” and that Fahrenhold had become the new owner.
“It is with great sadness that I announce that I have mutually decided to part ways with my husband David Fahrenhan,” McGraw said in the statement.
“We have grown apart, but I’m grateful for the many years of service we shared together.
The news is sad for the entire team of reporters and editors who worked tirelessly to build the newspaper, and I am forever grateful for all the good times we shared, and for the support and encouragement I received from all of you.”
Fahrenhart resigned from his post as CEO of the Times in December after a series of salacious and embarrassing stories that included the publication of unflattering photos of his wife and the alleged rape of a young girl.
McGraw will continue to run the paper through the end of the year, the newspaper said.
She has said she was forced to resign because she was unable to maintain control of the paper after Fahrenhardt’s departure.
McGrew is a graduate of the Columbia Journalism School and has worked for several newspapers including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquiirer, and New York Daily News.
She was born in Pittsburgh in 1967 and is of Indian and Scottish ancestry.
She lives in Pennsylvania.
