Katharine Weymouth is being replaced as publisher of the Washington Post, ending eight decades of leadership by the Graham family.

Weymouth is the niece of former publisher Donald Graham and granddaughter of the late publisher Katharine Graham.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who bought the newspaper last year, kept the old guard in place until choosing Frederick J. Ryan Jr. to take over as publisher.

Ryan is the former president of Politico and Allbritton Communications. A trustee of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, Ryan was a pallbearer at President Reagan’s funeral.
