The following excerpt was sent out from The Washington Post:

The Washington Post today announced the new roles of Charles Lane and Stephen Stromberg as deputy opinion editors, assuming joint leadership of the editorial board and succeeding Karen Tumulty as the first co-leaders of the board. Tumulty has returned to writing columns on her specialty, politics and America, in advance of the 2024 campaign.

Lane joined The Post in 2000 as a columnist, but served as a Supreme Court reporter until 2007, returning to the Opinions section after. He was a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in editorial writing. Stromberg joined The Post in 2006 and is a member of the Post team that won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for coverage of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“I am thrilled to announce this expanded leadership building on the momentum Karen and others have created,” said David Shipley, editorial page editor. “The team’s combined vision and ambition is proof of how editorials can continue to thrive in the 21st century.”
