Must Read

GBH has named a new leader of the newsroom after the Boston public station’s general manager for news resigned and following a round of layoffs.

The Boston station has appointed Dan Lothian to the newly created role of Editor in Chief, GBH News and The World. That role will lead the newsroom moving forward.

Lothian is currently the executive producer of The World, public radio’s longest-running daily global news program, produced in Boston by GBH and PRX.

This announcement of a new newsroom leader comes after Pam Johnston stepped aside as general manager of GBH News. Also last week, GBH cut 31 workers from 13 departments — about 4% of the station’s workforce. The station also suspended production of Greater Boston, Talking Politics, and Basic Black.

Lothian will now begin in his new role on June 1.

“Dan has impeccable credentials and is respected by colleagues throughout GBH and by journalists across the globe,” said Susan Goldberg, president and CEO of GBH.

“With his background in both breaking news and long-form features, and with deep experience in radio, television, and across digital platforms, he is ideally suited to lead coverage for today’s audiences,” Goldberg added.
