Respective heirs to the Washingtonian and Washington Post media empires, Catherine Merrill Williams and Katharine Weymouth, shared the trials and tribulations of running family-owned media corporations to earnest listeners at the George Town Club Jan. 28. While answering questions posed during Carol Joynt’s Q&A Cafe, Weymouth, the former publisher of Washington Post, and Williams, the current Washingtonian publisher and president, shared advice given to them by family members and mentors before taking the helm, such as going with their gut and running the business as they see fit—not their deceased relatives.
