Robert Allbritton has hired Erik Wemple, editor of City Paper, to edit the new metro site, which has yet to be named.

FishbowlDC has heard that WaPo’s Marc Fisher and other top editors around the country were under consideration for the job. But, said an industry insider, Wemple “won over the top brass with his take-charge attitude and innovative approach to the news.”
