The following excerpt announcement was sent out from The Washington Post:

The Washington Post today announced the promotion of Pulitzer Prize-winning opinion writer Jonathan Capehart to associate editor. The promotion is a reflection of Jonathan’s leadership at The Post where he has been a pivotal voice since 2007, both through his role on The Post’s editorial board and his weekly column exploring the intersection of social, cultural and political issues.

Capehart hosts a weekly Opinions podcast, “Capehart,” formerly named “Cape Up,” and the weekly Washington Post Live show “First Look,” which streams on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service. Capehart is also the host of “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart,” which airs Sundays 10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. ET on MSNBC. In addition, he serves as a political analyst on “PBS NewsHour” and is featured on the popular Friday segment, “Brooks and Capehart.”

Prior to joining The Post, Capehart was deputy editorial page editor of the New York Daily News and served on that paper’s editorial board from 1993 to 2000.

Capehart left the Daily News in July 2000 to become the national affairs columnist at Bloomberg News, and took a leave from this position in February 2001 to serve as a policy adviser to Michael Bloomberg in his first successful campaign for New York City mayor.
