Washington Post publisher Will Lewis “retains links to PR firm that bears his initials,’ states Financial Times

Washington Post publisher “Sir Will Lewis is facing a PR crisis, with his own newspaper and rivals investigating his past as a senior executive at Rupert Murdoch’s media empire,” reports London-based Financial Times.

The FT report adds that it is “the sort of problem that Lewis has, until recently, tried to solve for clients of his communications and consultancy firm, WJL Partners, named from his initials.

“Founded in 2020, WJLP has hosted dinners and other events for high-powered industry bosses, investors such as Sequoia Capital and politicians, as well as providing services such as preparing clients for media interviews, according to those familiar with its business.  On its website, WJLP says it sits “by the side of leaders who want a safe space, wise counsel and someone at the end of the phone”.

The firm, continues the Financial Times report, “has continued to operate even after Lewis was hired late last year to run The Washington Post by Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder who acquired the title in 2013.”

The Financial Times (FT) is based in London and has core editorial offices in the United States, Britain, and continental Europe.
