WaPo’s Zach Goldfarb Joins Financial Desk as Policy Editor

dc309fe9a6b001125715fcc173f6960d_400x400The Washington Post today announced in a memo to staff that Zach Goldfarb, a staff writer who covers the White House, will join the Post’s financial desk as a policy editor for a six-month term with the option to extend. In this role, he’ll manage Wonkblog and advise Storyline.

“Zach is a consummate Washington reporter whose love for news is equaled only by his deep understanding of public policy,” wrote financial editor Greg Schneider and deputy financial editor David Cho in the announcement. ”He is already a leader on our staff, generously consulting with editors and fellow reporters to make our coverage stronger. As a member of the White House reporting team focusing on economic policy, Zach has had his finger on the pulse of issues before the administration. He will bring that knowledge to the already high-revving Wonkblog crew, and, working with other reporters covering economic policy, will ensure that we continue to have the best, fastest and most insightful policy coverage anywhere.”

Post Names New National Security Editor

Susan Glasser and Scott Vance sent out the following announcement yesterday:

    We’re thrilled to announce that Carlos Lozada will be the newspaper’s next National Security Editor, working with our defense and foreign policy writers to lead our coverage at a critical time. Carlos brings huge talent, high energy and a deep grounding in foreign policy to his new role. As Susan’s deputy in Outlook, Carlos promised to help mount “a weekly guerrilla attack on conventional wisdom” and he did just that. His ideas were instrumental in transforming the section over the past year, as was his deft skill in commissioning, negotiating and editing pieces by such shrinking violets as John Bolton. He came to Outlook from the Financial staff, where he distinguished himself as Economics Editor. Before The Post, Carlos was managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine, which he helped transform from a quarterly journal into a glossy bi-monthly that won the National Magazine Award. Carlos, a native of Lima, Peru, received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Notre Dame and a master’s in public policy from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton. He’ll take the hand-off from Greg Schneider next week.
