Bill Hamilton, Susan Glasser, Deb Heard and Steve Reiss released the following announcement:
A New Style and National Beat
We’re delighted to announce that Jose Antonio Vargas will begin a new beat focusing on the way new media, from blogs to YouTube, are transforming politics.The beat will be a joint collaboration between the National politics team led by Bill Hamilton and the Style team led by Ann Gerhart. We expect his coverage will also have a significant presence on washingtonpost.com.
We expect him to bring the same imagination and enthusiasm to his new assignment that he has brought to writing about video games, AIDS/HIV and all his other stories. His work will appear in both the A section and in Style, where he will continue his highly successful collaboration with Marcia Davis, his editor.
