Changes in store for washingtonpost.com
People are talking and blogging about what will happen to washingtonpost.com and its staff as the new executive editor, Marcus Brauchli, takes the helm in the print newsroom. There’s not much yet.
Mediabistro has a memo from WPNI COO Jen Moyer announcing plans to depart on Sept. 1.
E&P interviewed Jim Brady; he says he expects the online newsroom to (f-i-n-a-l-l-y-!-!) merge withe the print newsroom.
Rafat at paidContent says Brauchli’s “biggest challenge will be to bring its Web site (and WPNI) closer to the newspaper without damaging the creative independence of the digital side.”
