Krissah Thompson to lead task force building WaPo’s third newsroom

by | Jul 8, 2024

The Washington Post announced that Krissah Thompson will run the newsroom process of building the third newsroom. According to The Post:  “With a task force she is currently forming and expects to have in place this week, and input from across the newsroom colleagues from the commercial side, she will helm our effort to set up the structure and plans for this next era of growth for The Post. In taking on this assignment, Krissah will temporarily step back from most daily duties.”

The main focus of the project, states The Post, “is properly structuring ourselves for a rapidly and regularly changing news ecosystem. While bolstering and growing the core Post products and expanding our reach, we aim to concentrate some of our journalistic resources, as well as our substantial expertise and brainpower, toward developing new products and formats, and deepening our capabilities, that will bring our journalism to different audiences, especially off-platform users who consume Washington Post journalism but are less likely to subscribe for our traditional offerings.
Thompson, a two-decade-plus veteran of the Post, “is uniquely qualified to shepherd us,” states The Post.
