“In creating the breaking-news hubs, The Post will be able to operate energetically and rapidly 24 hours a day and seven days a week, with a particular emphasis on the live coverage of major stories that has become a growing part of our storytelling arsenal through a year dominated by pandemic, protests and politics.
“In all, The Post is creating 19 jobs for this initiative to be divided between two hubs in London and Seoul. Each hub will include four breaking-news reporters and two breaking-news editors, and will also include a visuals editor, an audience editor and at least one multiplatform editor to bring additional scrutiny to our work.
“The new positions overseas for breaking-news coverage and the new postings for Sydney and Bogotá are part of a broader expansion at The Post in 2021 that will increase the newsroom’s overall staffing by 44 journalists. When all positions are filled, The Post’s newsroom staff will grow to 1,010, the most ever.”
The newsroom’s audience team also will grow, with the addition of four staffers. They will join others in enhancing The Post’s presence on Instagram.
