WaPo announced yesterday that Local Politics Editor Steven Ginsberg will become the deputy national political editor.
From the memo:
Steven is one of the newsroom’s most entrepreneurial editors, and we look forward to tapping his creative mind as we continue to strengthen our national political coverage in print and online. Steven brings with him a fountain of ideas for our PostPolitics site, and a successful run shepherding the local political report, including last year’s stellar coverage of the Virginia gubernatorial campaign.
He is known as a patient editor who helps develop reporters, and someone with a keen digital sensibility and an eye for visual journalism. He will be no stranger to National. He served as deputy politics editor during the 2008 presidential campaign, and was part of our core National editing team in the early months of 2009.
Since coming to The Post as a copy aide in 1994, Steven has been a local and state government reporter, covered transportation, and was an assignment editor on the old Virginia desk.
Please welcome him back to National as soon as he makes the transition.
