Julie Pace, a longtime Washington journalist who managed coverage of the U.S. government during a period of historic tumult, was named the executive editor and senior vice president of The Associated Press.

The 39-year-old Pace has been the AP’s Washington bureau chief since 2017, guiding reporting on the Trump administration, national security, politics and the Biden White House. She rose to the newsroom’s top leadership spot with a promise to accelerate the AP’s digital transformation.

Pace succeeds Sally Buzbee, who became executive editor of The Washington Post in June, and is the third consecutive woman to lead the AP’s worldwide news operation.
