by | Jan 18, 2024

The Washington Post reports that Robert Samuels “one of his generation’s most perceptive, empathetic and eternally curious journalists, is returning to The Washington Post as a National enterprise reporter with a broad mandate to document America at this consequential time.

“Robert’s mission is to tell compelling, distinct and essential stories that excavate complicated truths about the people, institutions and history of the United States. Our readers will discover, through his deep reporting and powerful storytelling, the forces tearing our country apart and the people trying to heal it. He will craft narratives in his unique voice and also collaborate with colleagues across the newsroom.

“This is a homecoming for Robert, who had been integral to the fabric of The Post for more than a decade before departing a year ago for a role as a staff writer at the New Yorker.”

The Post adds: “A true Post original, Robert is a generous colleague, inspiring mentor and evangelist for the institution’s mission and values. He says he was drawn back to The Post, in part, because “I miss working with my friends every day.”

Last year, Samuels and his co-author, Toluse Olorunnipa, The Post’s  White House bureau chief, won the Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction for their book, “His Name is George Floyd.
