Washington Post general assignment editor Keith McMillan and deputy managing editor Sharif Durhams sent out the following:

We are thrilled to announce that Kyle Rempfer has joined the General Assignment news desk as weekend editor. Kyle will help guide GA reporters on breaking news and produce timely, riveting stories that resonate with readers. Kyle will also help bridge the gap between our U.S.-based weekend operations and the handoff to the Seoul and London news hubs.

Kyle comes to GA from Military Times, where he was a reporter and editor for five years. He began there as a general assignment reporter and before long was covering the Army, leading accountability reporting efforts and spearheading investigative projects. He won the Military Reporters & Editors Association’s domestic coverage award for his work in 2021.
Before Military Times, Kyle spent nearly five years training for and serving in the Air Force’s Special Tactics ground force. He was attached to an Army Green Beret team in Afghanistan and worked out of a strike cell in Iraq. Kyle has a master’s degree in national security policy from Georgetown and a bachelor’s from the University of Maryland, speaks some Russian and is a master scuba diver.

Kyle lives in Arlington, where he enjoys walking his husky, practicing jiu jitsu, cooking and watching horror movies with his wife. He also likes to read historical nonfiction, especially books about the Cold War and espionage.

Please join us in welcoming Kyle to The Post. His first day was Nov. 28.
