The Washington Post announced today that Usha Chaudhary, its chief financial officer and vice president for finance and administration, would depart Nov. 21 to take a leadership post at the Pew Charitable Trusts. The news follows the Oct. 1 departure of Publisher Katharine Weymouth, who was replaced by former Allbritton Communications Co. executive Fred Ryan. Together, these developments will leave The Post’s masthead with absolute gender uniformity.
