An internal staff notice from WaPo’s Len Downie and Phil Bennett, obtained by FishbowlDC:
As part of our effort to build connections between the daily and feature sections and consolidate coverage, Frances Sellers, editor of the Health weekly, will be joining the National staff on Sept. 1.
Frances will attend the daily National editors meetings and will work more closely with National’s health and science team and with the top editors on the National staff. The fourth floor design team and copy desk will continue to handle the Health weekly and thus Frances will remain in her fourth floor office. Starting in September, Metro and National will each contribute two cover stories a month for the Health weekly.
This set up may evolve as we continue to explore the best structure and the right.resources for health coverage.
