Timberg appointed senior editor for collaborative investigations at the Washington Post
The following excerpt was sent out from The Washington Post’s senior managing editor Cameron Barr:
I am delighted to announce that Craig Timberg will undertake a new role: senior editor for collaborative investigations.
Craig will oversee projects and investigations that involve collaborations with international consortia, as well as journalism nonprofits and other news organizations here and abroad.
Craig’s role – which he pioneered in his important contributions to the Pegasus Project – will be to build relationships with outside groups, guide our internal decision-making in choosing which efforts to join, and oversee our reporting and editing when we do take part.
He will report to me and work closely with the masthead and department heads in marshaling the resources needed for success.
As a Metro reporter beginning in 1998, he covered Virginia politics from Richmond and, later, D.C. politics.
He has twice served as an editor – as Education editor in 2009-2010 and then as deputy National Security editor.
Craig’s arrival at The Post was preceded by stints at the Valley News in West Lebanon, N.H.; the Concord Monitor in Concord, N.H.; and the Baltimore Sun. He earned a degree in philosophy and history at Connecticut College.
