Steven Ginsberg has been named the new national editor at The Washington Post.
The Post welcomed Ginsberg into his new role by announcing that:
“For the past six years, Steven has brought a combination of zeal and Zen to the leadership of our national political report, inspiring reporters and editors to deliver fast-paced, creative and revelatory work. A master of recruiting, retention and the morale-boosting chat, he has built the politics team into the powerhouse it has become, delivering peerless coverage of the 2016 race and the early months of the Trump presidency.”
He steps into the national editor role after former editor Scott Wilson left the position earlier this month. He left “after disputes with his superiors over newsroom resources for his coverage areas,” sources said.
Ginsberg has worked at The Washington Post since 1994, when he joined the paper as a nightside copy aide. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia.
