Updated Sunday evening
Washington Post Chief Executive and Chairman Donald Graham was married Saturday evening to fellow news executive Amanda Bennett in a small family ceremony. The couple slipped off to Philadelphia for the private, family-only wedding: Son Will Graham was best man; Bennett’s daughter, Georgia Foley, served as maid-of-honor.
The longtime friends and colleagues — who served together on the Pulitzer Prize board from 2002 to 2008 — have been dating for three years.
Graham, 67, a former reporter, editor and publisher of The Post, is the grandson of Eugene Meyer, who bought the newspaper in 1933. His 40-year marriage to Mary Graham, with whom he has four children, ended in divorce five years ago.
Bennett, 59, is a former editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Lexington Herald-Leader who now oversees investigative projects as an executive editor at Bloomberg News.
She was married for 20 years to the late Terence Foley, the father of her two children. Last month, she published a memoir, “The Cost of Hope,” about their expensive battle to try to cure the cancer that ended his life in 2007.
