Washington Post appoints Alvarez as contributing opinion columnist
The Washington Post has tapped Lizette Alvarez as a contributing opinion columnist, based in Miami, where she will cover issues related to Florida, immigration, politics and more.
“We are dedicated to offering our readers compelling voices and perspectives from around the country,” said Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for the Post. “Lizette will draw on her years of award-winning reporting, providing a non-Washington point of view on a range of timely issues.”
Previously, Alvarez has worked at The Miami Herald, the New York Daily News and The New York Times, where she spent 22 years covering New York, Europe, Congress, military veterans, Florida and Puerto Rico.
More recently, she served as Miami bureau chief for The New York Times.
Alvarez is also the recipient of several awards for her reporting, including the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting and the Polk Award.
