Beginning Monday, Alex Pappas will be breaking news editor at the Washington Examiner. He joins from The Daily Caller, where he has been senior political reporter.
“Alex is a superb political journalist with fine news judgment, and he’s a great fit for us as we strengthen and accelerate our coverage of big and breaking stories,” said editorial director Hugo Gurdon in a statement. “Alex is one of several new hires coming to Washington Examiner in the next few months, and he’s an excellent one.”
This marks a return to the Examiner for Pappas, who previously had a six-month stint there between 2010 and 2011, when he served as a reporter covering Prince Georges County. “I’m honored to join the top-notch group of journalists at the Washington Examiner and look forward to contributing to their coverage of news and politics,” Pappas said in a statement. “I’ve always admired the Examiner’s journalism and am eager to get started.”
