Washington Post to add more than 70 newsroom positions in 2022

by | Feb 11, 2022

“I am thrilled to tell you that 2022 will bring significant new investment in our journalism with more than 70 positions being added to the newsroom, plus additional resources in areas such as marketing that will extend the impact of our reporting and support The Post’s growth,” states Washington Post Executive Editor Sally Buzbee in a staff memo.

Buzbee’s memo adds:

Over the last six months, we have worked to expand and strengthen our news leadership team. We also announced the addition of 41 new editing positions across coverage areas. Both steps aimed at strengthening our newsroom infrastructure as a foundation to support the additional growth we will launch this year.

“The expansion we are laying out today reflects our strong commitment to our news mission of scrutinizing power and empowering people. It comes after months of in-depth research surveying our audiences, including younger news consumers, about what they need and want from us. We believe this expansion will attract an even larger global audience for our journalism and deepen our engagement with that audience.

“The growth will happen in three main categories:
  • Expanding our coverage areas
  • Enriching and growing what we’re best at
  • Investing in new storytelling tools”
