Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

The Washington Post has named Alan Sipress national news editor, a new title for the paper. Sipress had been the federal editor on the national desk since March 2015. He joined WaPo in 2002 originally as a Southeast Asia correspondent out of Jakarta for four years, before moving to deputy business editor in 2008.

WaPo has also announced that Margaret Sullivan will be joining the publication as a media columnist. Sullivan has been the public editor at The New York Times for nearly four years, and had previously reported that she would be leaving the paper in August. Prior to her tenure at The NYT, she served as the editor of The Buffalo News. Follow The Washington Post on Twitter and Pinterest for breaking news and analysis from around the beltway.
