The Post is closing the doors on its Washington bureau after months of controversy over the decision to move it to the suburbs.
The decision to expand into the suburbs was part of a broader effort by the newspaper to build a better and more agile news operation, the newspaper said Tuesday in a statement.
The Washington Post was created in 1919.
President Donald Trump, a Republican, announced his resignation in early February.
He had called the move a “great decision,” but he said the move would create jobs and boost morale.
He was criticized by some in the media for not doing enough to keep the newsroom open.
The Post has a staff of nearly 30,000, and the newspaper was one of the first major news organizations to adopt a digital subscription model.
Trump has said he was not interested in staying at the paper, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who runs the paper’s digital operations, said the newspaper would remain in the city.
The decision to close the Washington bureau was made as the paper tries to rebuild and attract new reporters.
It also reflects a shifting of emphasis at the newspaper as more traditional news organizations grapple with the digital age.
The paper has been working to develop a new online platform, which would allow it to publish more stories on the front page and in its front page, as well as on mobile devices and other platforms.
