Moss said the timing of her departure was influenced by the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in the suspension of live programming throughout the city. No announcement was made about her replacement.
“I had begun to consider moving into a new chapter of my life prior to the pandemic,” Moss said in a statement. “But the multi-year/multi-track cycle of programming never allowed time for a responsible departure and smooth transition. Now that our current situation has put a pause on live programming, I feel I can step down.”
Moss added that the decision to step down was “full of sadness,” but that she remains “eager to make a new kind of contribution to the life and well-being of New York as we face very challenging times ahead.
