WaPo Names John Temple New Managing Editor

The Washington Post has named John Temple its new Managing Editor. Temple was most recently the founding editor of Honolulu Civil Beat, an online news site. Prior to that he was the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the Rocky Mountain News, which folded in 2009. Marcus Brauchli, the Executive Editor of WaPo, said Temple was the perfect candidate for the job.

“As a managing editor for The Post, John will ensure that the coverage we provide to our print and digital audiences is smart, original and acutely attentive to our audience,” said Brauchli. “He’ll help us to build on the rapid growth we’ve enjoyed recently with readers who come to us through our website, on mobile devices, or through new platforms like the incredibly successful Washington Post Social Reader on Facebook.”

Temple’s first day is April 30.
