Boston Globe Investigating Allegations Brian McGrory Sent Inappropriate Text

This article is more than 1 year old.

The Boston Globe said Thursday it is investigating an alleged inappropriate text message exchange between one of its top editors and a former editor for Boston.com.

Hilary Sargent, the former editor, tweeted a photo of a text where she says Brian McGrory, editor of the Globe, asked her what she was wearing while she was writing.

Sargent told a Globe reporter that the paper's lawyers sent her a draft of a lawsuit seeking her to compel her to give them more information about the texts under the terms of a 2016 separation agreement.

McGrory says he does not recall the exchange and denies any accusations of harassment.
