The following announcement was sent out from The Washington Post national news editor Steven Ginsberg, deputy national news editor Lori Montgomery and climate and environment editor Trish Wilson:
We are delighted to announce that Juliet Eilperin will become deputy climate and environment editor.
In her new role, Eilperin will oversee coverage of the struggle to manage a changing climate, with a special focus on efforts – in Washington and around the world – to transform our fossil fuel-dependent economy and rein in greenhouse gas emissions. She also will coordinate with desks across the newsroom to cover extreme weather and other destructive manifestations of global warming.
For the past four years, Eilperin has been a senior national correspondent covering climate and environment. Most recently, Eilperin helped develop an online tracker for environmental regulations that won first place in beat reporting from the Society of Environmental Journalists.
Eilperin joined The Post to cover Congress in 1998. Before coming to The Post, Eilperin covered the Hill for Roll Call and the now-defunct States News Service. She spent a year reporting in Seoul on a Luce Scholarship and a summer as an intern for The New York Times in Mexico. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, majoring in politics with a certificate in Latin American Studies.
Please join us in congratulating Juliet as she moves into her new role.
