Keith Richburg to New York

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

    We’re very pleased to announce that Keith Richburg, currently the Post’s foreign editor and before that one of the paper’s most intrepid and engaging correspondents, will be hitting the road again soon as The Post’s New York bureau chief. After two and a half years here in Washington reacclimating himself to the strange ways of the newsroom and adeptly helping steer the foreign report each day into the paper, Keith will be in charge of roaming New York and the Northeast and producing a menu of strong front-page enterprise pieces – at a key political moment when New Yorkers lead both party’s presidential fields. Though he’s not yet familiar with the far corners of Maine, there’s pretty much nowhere else in the world Keith hasn’t been – whether Mogadishu, East Timor, Baghdad or Bangkok. He’s ridden by horseback over the Hindu Kush at the height of the Afghan war, camped out in his car under an Iraqi highway for days to wait out the fall of Basra, written a book on his experiences in Africa and even, or so his bio on the Source claims, managed to spend a year in Hawaii. He hopes to head up I-95 in November.
