A week from today, a news editor will be wrapping up her first day of service at the New York offices of the Guardian. She is Fahima Haque (pictured), currently an associate editor with the New York Post and, previously, a weekend editor with AOL and a web producer for the Washington Post.
Haque is one of four changes announced by Guardian US editor Lee Glendinning. Also promoted at the paper, effective immediately, are:
Paul Owen becomes deputy head of news. Paul began his career as a news reporter at North West London Newspapers before joining the Guardian ten years ago. He worked initially on the politics desk, helping to develop live-blogging as blogs producer and then becoming web news editor before moving to NYC as live editor last year.
Raya Jalabi is confirmed as news editor. Raya joined the Guardian more than three years ago, and was most recently in a hybrid reporter-editor role. She was instrumental in coverage of international breaking news stories, including the attacks in Paris and Brussels, and will continue to assist with covering international news.
Finally, later this summer, Mark Oliver will return to New York to serve as special projects editor. He worked here in the summer of 2015 as a Guardian US news editor and has been with the paper in London since 2000.
