From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson headlined “Boston Globe Names NPR’s Nancy Barnes Its Next Editor”:

Nancy Barnes, a top news executive at NPR, will lead The Boston Globe, the newspaper said on Monday.

Ms. Barnes, 61, has held top editorial jobs at major news organizations across the country. Before joining NPR, the public radio network, in 2018, she was the executive editor of the Houston Chronicle and editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. She announced in September that she would leave NPR, where she is senior vice president for news and editorial director, after a new executive role was created above her.
