Washington Post Shuffles Books Staff Leadership

The Washington Post has shuffled the leadership at the Book World section. Poynter has posted a memo about the changes from executive editor Marcus Brauchli.

Here’s an excerpt from the memo: “Our books staff, ably led for the past two and a half years by Rachel Shea, will now report into the sections where their reviews run. Non-fiction editor Steve Levingston will report to Outlook, which publishes non-fiction reviews, and fiction editor Ron Charles, and the rest of Book World’s assistant editors, will report to Style, which hosts most fiction coverage and reviews. The assistant editors will support both fiction and non-fiction reviews and coverage. This approach will allow tighter and smarter integration of our books coverage with the host sections, in print and online. We’re not trimming coverage; we will publish the same number of reviews, in the same places where readers are accustomed to finding them.”

When asked if Shea would be cut, the executive editor told Publishers Weekly that “he is not at liberty to discuss personnel matters.” (Via Jennifer Howard)
