Washington Post chairman Donald Graham gets married

Washington Post Chairman and CEO Donald Graham was married Saturday evening in Philadelphia to fellow former newspaper executive Amanda Bennett in a small family ceremony.

The longtime friends and colleagues — who served together on the Pulitzer Prize board from 2002 to 2008 — have been dating for about two 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.
