The metro editor of The New York Times, Wendell Jamieson, resigned on Monday following an internal investigation at the newspaper. 

“I regret and apologize for my mistakes and leaving under these circumstances,” Jamieson said in a statement published by the Times.

“Leading Metro for the last five years and working with the incredible Times team has been the high point of my professional life," he continued.

Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy did not say why an investigation into Jamieson was launched. 

“To protect the privacy of those involved, we do not intend to comment further," Times executive editor Dean Baquet and managing editor Joseph Kahn said in a note to employees, according to the newspaper.

The Times launched an investigation into its reporter Glenn Thrush in November after Vox published a story detailing sexual misconduct allegations against him. 

Thrush was suspended during the probe. 

"The behavior attributed to Glenn in this Vox story is very concerning and not in keeping with the standards and values of The New York Times,” Murphy said in a statement.

“We intend to fully investigate and while we do, Glenn will be suspended. We support his decision to enter a substance abuse program. In the meantime, we will not be commenting further.”
