WaPo financial desk adds editor
Washington Post financial editor Greg Schneider and deputy financial editor David Cho made the following announcement on Wednesday:
We’re delighted to announce that Zach Goldfarb is joining us on the Financial editing desk for a six-month gig (with an option to extend).
Zach will be our Policy Editor, with primary responsibility for Wonkblog and a role advising Storyline. He and Ryan McCarthy will work together to better integrate the two sites in terms of planning and support. Zach also will serve as a liaison with other departments around the newsroom on policy-related issues, better coordinating our coverage and helping to avoid needless duplication.
Zach is a consummate Washington reporter whose love for news is equaled only by his deep understanding of public policy. He is already a leader on our staff, generously consulting with editors and fellow reporters to make our coverage stronger. As a member of the White House reporting team focusing on economic policy, Zach has had his finger on the pulse of issues before the administration. He will bring that knowledge to the already high-revving Wonkblog crew, and, working with other reporters covering economic policy, will ensure that we continue to have the best, fastest and most insightful policy coverage anywhere.
Please join us in welcoming Zach onto the desk.
