The Washington Post will take new steps in 2021 to become a more global newsroom by creating breaking-news hubs in Europe and Asia. These operations will be staffed by reporters and editors whose primary focus will be covering live news as it unfolds in the United States and around the globe during nighttime hours in Washington.
The Post will also establish new foreign bureaus in Sydney and Bogotá, adding to an international footprint that will grow to 26 locations around the world. The moves follow the recent creation of a Europe-based role that will focus on covering global conflicts.
In creating the breaking-news hubs, The Post said the moves will let it “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.
The Post intends to ensure that its readers everywhere can rely on a full, timely news report at any hour, including rich, multi-faceted coverage during the critical early-morning window in North America.”
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.
