The Washington Post will add two new deputy managing editors and 41 editing positions that states The Post, “will grow our capacity to produce timely breaking news, revelatory enterprise and definitive investigative work; create visually rich stories that our audiences find compelling; cover topics that resonate with younger, more diverse readers; and develop innovations that will define a new era of digital journalism. The expansion will allow us to create a greater number of career paths across the newsroom and increase the number of journalists of color in editing roles.”

This major investment in the newsroom, continues The Post, “will also fund new roles to carry out functions essential to a growing news organization. First, we will create two positions for standards editors who will refine and maintain newsroom policies, working closely and collaboratively with all our journalists to promote best practices and ensure that our work meets the high expectations of our audiences. And we will establish two roles devoted to recruiting – a senior editor and an assistant editor – to help us systematize the way we recruit, hire and onboard staffers. These roles are critical to the fulfillment of our strong commitment to diversity.

“This expansion demonstrates anew that The Washington Post is an ascendant news organization, with boundless ambitions and a growing capacity to meet them.”
