Post Taps New Ombudswoman

Whenever we take a long lunch, we seem to end up missing big news. Post Exec Editor Len Downie just announced to the Post staff that Deborah Howell, Newhouse News Service’s D.C. bureau chief, will be succeeding Michael Getler as the paper’s ombudsman (er, ombudswoman now, we guess).

Downie wrote:

Deborah Howell knows newsroom and newspapers and all that they must be to their readers and staffers. She has directed coverage of all types of news–local, national and international. She cares about the newspaper as a reader and is eager to help us understand how best to appeal to and serve our readers. While she has never worked in our newsroom, she has read The Post as her hometown newspaper since 1990.

Romenesko has the full announcement.
