ABOLYUrFThe Washington Post announced that Lois Romano will be leaving Politico to rejoin their staff as editor of Washington Post Live.

“Lois rejoins The Post with enormous enthusiasm and a bounty of ideas,” said executive editor, Martin Baron, in the announcement. “Above all, she understands that our growing events business is an extension of our journalism. That means you’ll find her reaching out to everyone in the newsroom, seeking your help, advice, and participation.”

Romano starts with the Post on Feb. 2 and will report directly to Baron, while working closely with Bob Bierman, general manager of Washington Post Live, Steve Hills and Fred Ryan.

Romano expressed her excitement in returning to the Post via Twitter, while thanking her friends at Politico. She will succeed Mary Jordan as editor of Washington Post Live, who will join the Post’s National Politics team as a political correspondent to be part of their 2016 campaign coverage.
