Meg Goldthwaite, NPR’s top marketing executive, is leaving the network.

She will step down from her role as chief marketing officer Monday and “transition back to being just a loyal NPR listener, subscriber, and cheerleader,” she said in an email to colleagues about her departure. 

Goldthwaite did not say why she is leaving or discuss her plans. She tweeted that it is “unclear” what she will do next. 

“It has been a delight to work alongside such passionate professionals and to share in our collective effort to further the NPR mission of creating a more informed public,” she wrote in the email.

Goldthwaite was hired as CMO in 2016. 

Loren Mayor, NPR’s president of operations, is also leaving this month.

Correction: A previous version of this article said that Mayor will leave in March. She is leaving at the end of February.
