Washington Post to launch energy/environment newsletter
Washington Post national editor Scott Wilson, senior politics editor Steven Ginsberg, deputy politics editor Amy Gardner, and PowerPost editor Rachel Van Dongen sent out the following announcement on Friday:
We’re excited to announce that Dino Grandoni will be joining the PowerPost team to anchor our upcoming newsletter on energy and the environment. This is the final author hire for the three newsletters PowerPost is launching over the next several months to deepen its financial services, health care and energy and environmental coverage.
Dino was most recently a climate and energy reporter at BuzzFeed News, where he covered the intersection of science, industry and government, breaking stories about lobbying by the oil and gas industry and shakeups at science agencies under the Trump administration. Before that, he co-wrote a series on ExxonMobil’s early climate change research for a reporting project based at Columbia Journalism School and published in the Los Angeles Times. He has also been technology editor at The Huffington Post and a reporting fellow at The New York Times and The Atlantic.
A native of Buffalo, Dino received both a master’s in science journalism and a bachelor’s in economics and political science from Columbia University.
Please welcome Dino when he starts on May 1.
