The following excerpt announcement was sent out by The Washington Post’s local editor Mike Semel:
We are thrilled to announce that Maria Glod will be the next deputy local editor, effective immediately.
For nearly 25 years at The Post, Maria has shown impeccable judgment, a penchant for collaboration and a compassionate and supportive style of leadership.
This is a natural move for Maria, who has spent her entire career in Metro. She was a reporter in our bureaus in Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince George’s counties, as well as downtown. As an editor for the past 11 years, she has worked across the newsroom to bring forth our best coverage of huge events.
Maria has been central to moving Metro into its digital-first mentality and has plans to strengthen that evolution.
She joined The Post in 1997 as Loudoun County’s cops reporter, and covered the Fairfax schools, national education and the Maryland federal courts before becoming an editor in 2011. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Bucknell University and lives in Chevy Chase with her husband, Mike, son Alex and their pandemic pup.
