Guardian EIC to step down after 20 years
"Announced tdy that I will succeed Liz Forgan as Scott Trust Chair in 2016. Great honour to be asked to take this role," Rusbridger tweets. "Scott Trust founded to protect and safeguard Guardian. Important bastion of free speech & journalistic independence. Will step down as editor in chief of the Guardian after 20 years next summer."
"Alan Rusbridger - for 17 years my inspiring editor: never afraid, always pushing us to be bigger, bolder, braver," praises Guardian US editor-in-chief Katharine Viner.
Meanwhile, Rusbridger also shared the Guardian piece on his impending job, adding, "Guardian story on @guardian news about changes at the top," which Columbia Journalism Review's Kira Goldenberg thought was the "Meta-ist tweet ever."
