WaPo’s Anthony Faiola to London

WaPo memo naming Tony Faiola as new London bureau chief below:

We are pleased to announce that Anthony Faiola will become our new bureau chief in London, succeeding Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan. Tony’s high-flying journalism about the economic crisis in recent months will serve him well when he lands in a Britain that is looking a lot like the moribund pre-Thatcher days. His feature writing skills, versatility, curiosity and energy will be in constant demand as he grapples with a beat that zeros in on the Queen’s butler one moment, terrorism the next, and the Libor after tea.

As Tony has put it, his specialty is the societal telescope, the spy glasses for readers. In two previous tours abroad, Tony was a master at finding that anecdote or special moment that opens a window on the larger truth. Tony began his career at the Post in 1994, when he joined the Financial staff. He then spent more than five years as Buenos Aires correspondent, followed by tours in Tokyo and New York. Before coming to the Post, he worked as a financial writer and government reporter at The Miami Herald.

We hope to see Tony on station by Labor Day.

Faiola Becomes Post’s Next Global Economics Reporter

From the Washington Post’s internal announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    We are delighted to announce that Anthony Faiola will be our next global economics reporter. He will chronicle the tremendous impact that increasingly global markets, outsourcing and the free trade policies pushed by the U.S. are having on the economic well being of people throughout the world. Tony brings to this coverage a sharp eye for telling details, a talent for storytelling and a first hand knowledge of globalization. During his time in Latin America and Asia, he wrote about hungry, desperate mobs descending on an overturned cattle truck in an economically devastated Argentina, Brazilian elite resorting to helicopters to avoid urban violence, and the dramatic response of the Japanese to soaring global energy prices.

    Tony began his career at the Post in 1994, when he joined the Financial staff. He then spent more than five years as the bureau chief based in Buenos Aires, before becoming the Northeast Asia bureau chief, based in Tokyo and then the New York bureau chief. Before coming to the Post, he worked as a financial writer and government reporter at The Miami Herald. Tony will move to Washington and start his new beat later this fall.

Michael Powell To The New York Times?

Lots of buzz about the Washington Post’s Michael Powell heading to the New York Times. We’ll keep you posted…

You’ll recall that, just two weeks ago, it was announced that Powell would no longer be the paper’s New York Bureau Chief (that’s now Anthony Faiola) and would return to the Style section as a political writer for the 2008 campaign.

Anthony Faiola New New York Bureau Chief For W. Post

From the Post:

    We’re delighted to announce that Anthony Faiola, the Post’s Tokyo bureau chief, will become our next New York bureau chief after a great run as a foreign correspondent. Tony succeeds Michael Powell, who returns to Style as a political writer for the 2008 campaign after a distinguished turn in National anchoring us in New York and New England for the entire post-9/11 period. Tony brings to New York the veteran correspondent’s eye for news – combined with the flair of a cultural anthropologist who could easily earn a second living as a trend spotter. After arriving at the Post’s financial desk in 1994 from the Miami Herald, Tony quickly set out for parts abroad.

    As Buenos Aires bureau chief from 1997 to 2003, he ranged widely across South America, keeping us up to date on everything from Brazilian soccer to Chile’s runaway Nazis to the Argentine economic collapse. Once he landed in Tokyo, he became immersed in the Dear Leader’s nuclear tantrums on what he likes to call Planet North Korea, took us deep inside the region’s still-present World War II-era animosities and chronicled life in Japan, the world’s most rapidly graying nation.
